It’s very rewarding to see how the craftswomen translated the initial design with their own comprehension. The design was taken to the next level by their unique understanding, that eventually gave a sense of innocence and added story to the final results—an old story told anew.
The story of Timun Mas was brought to life from the mind of @chitras
, the creative soul of @sejauh_mata_memandang.
Her love for Indonesian tales and traditions continued to inspire her making this collection.
I am more than grateful to be able to take part in bringing her vision came to life through stages of creative process. We developed some core patterns inspired by four magical items given to Timun Mas: cucumber seeds, thorns, salt, and shrimp paste. Some fabrics depict a scene in which the antagonist, the giant Buto Ijo, trapped inside a cucumber forest.
