Materials

This garment is crafted from 100% pure unbleached cotton grown locally in Indonesia, and handwoven on a traditional handloom machine by RŪPAHAUS’ Lorek weavers. This Javanese family has contributed immensely to RŪPAHAUS’ success, and because of the demand, the family has been able to create sustainable working opportunities for women weavers in neighbouring villages.

Please note: this garment is hand-dyed with plant-based, natural dyes and, as such, each garment will be unique. Due to the lack of chemicals used, slight fading may appear where the dye may not have taken to the fabric. Wash this garment separately for the first 3 cycles, use a ph-neutral or low-ph natural detergent, and if you’re really dedicated, new pieces that need their first wash will have a better turn-out if a tbsp of ordinary ground salt is added to the water and left to soak for ten minutes. Follow our care guide for more instructions.
