traditional indonesian textiles
LARAS bags are made from traditional Indonesian textiles, mixed up in a modern way. For you to express your 'Indo-ness'.
The traditional Indonesian textiles produced by local Indonesian artists are true pieces of art, all made by hand. The result: a cloth with a soul.
Every cloth is unique with her own colours and design. They all tell a beautiful story, stories about the most precious things in the artists's life.
We select the cloths one by one directly from the artists, so each bag is unique. Some of the cloths are family pieces, donated by my Indonesian oma Oetje (grandma). My talented aunt Atiet who lives in Indonesia sews the bags with much love and dedication and she manages the business in Indonesia. I am so grateful for her love and dedication for helping me explore my Indonesian roots.
