Over the past 10 years, we have devoted part of our spare time, campaigning to preserve Indonesian traditional textiles culture and tradition. We believe that encouraging the continuous production of traditional handmade textiles will help empower women and strengthen the global economy. Appreciating slow textiles more will help reduce the production of unnecessary fast textiles and fast fashion, hence saving the planet from further climate destruction. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this cloth will go to support grassroots projects by Connect Indonesia, The Charity, a volunteer-based organization we started in the year 2000. We distribute reading glasses to the weavers regularly to help them produce better quality textiles. For full details about Connect Indonesia, please visit

Since 2009, we have campaigned vigorously to help the weavers to preserve our real textile culture and to create a balance between cultural preservation and economic development. From January 2021, we are creating collaborative work for the artisans and textiles agents from around Indonesia in the hope that we will be able to offer you as many varieties of Heritage textiles from around the archipelago.

Thank you for your interest and love for Indonesian textiles.

Best wishes and happy shopping.
Wastra Indonesia, The Global Team
