We worked with conscious label Gypsied, to photograph their latest collection of clutches: Layar and Indra. What remains a great delight is the idea and understanding behind the motifs used for most, if not all their collections.
Layar, meaning to soar is a call to spread our wings and fly in the direction of our dreams. The timeless message of hope is depicted in the wings of the Sido Asih, an ancient motif that was once reserved for the royal courts of Java.
Meanwhile, the Indra clutch has the parang motif which is recognised as a symbol of courage and strength. However, this unique parang batik features smooth curves accompanied by calming shades of indigo blue instead of sharp edges and narrow forms.
