CHIC & DARLING AT EAT ART LOUD, I Love Bazaar Jakarta.

Our last big event at the Market & Museum Summer Pop Festival in June was a huge success, and this time we are coming back with more energy, more amazing new products and more happiness to greet everyone in person! We are oh so happy and jumping with joy that we will be participating at the next event of I LOVE BAZAAR JAKARTA, EAT ART LOUD. 

This time, we will officially launched our "Kitchen wares". Our new series of tea towels called "The Dancing Trees" and our Limited Edition "Eye Candy" collection will be released at the event. Get the chance to be the first to grab our new stuff freshly from our workshop! Come down, say hi to us, have a chat or two and have fun! See you all at out booth A1, YAY!

Booth A1


As an extension of our annual CSR commitment program, around mid-march we had an epiphany to collaborate with a special talent for a special project that was very dear to us. We had the pleasure to work with The Humanity Forum and Lentera Anak Pelangi to help contribute to the caring for children that was diagnosed with HIV in Jakarta. We were lucky enough that we got to also collaborate with a very dear friend and also one of the most rising talent in Indonesia, Kelly's The Wrapping Paper Company

We decided to make two different products for two different use. As (at that time) we were about to launch a tea towel series as part of our "New Kitchen section", so we thought this could also be a fantastic teaser! Greatly inspired by children, yet we wanted to make something that everyone - at all age- can enjoy. We wanted to make something that everyone can relate to, which is dreams and happiness. Despite what these kids are going through, we are motivated and inspired by their strength and fighting spirit. The thought of Lemon and Flamingo just popped out in our mind, but the execution was a little tricky. We are proud that all materials used was safe for all homes and families, screen printed manually into a soft durable absorbent linen using water-based ink. 

We purposely produced the lemon tea towel and flamingo pillow in limited quantity. We launched these products at Market & Museum, June 2014 and it was sold out before we know it. It was truly overwhelming. Now, 40% of the profit has been contributed to these children currently undergoing medication. We would like to thank you to everyone who participated, who shopped, had fun and made use of these wonderful products. Not only you deserved that treat, you have also taken part in a good change.

Another dream has came true

The long awaited most anticipated personal project of ours has finally completed. It feels like another journey has begun. We have been working so hard everyday to get to where we are now. So so so truly happy to share with you that we have officially moved in to our new little office/studio (please excuse the messy desk as we are still settling in). To us, this is not just an office/studio, this is a small manifestation of our dreams. Only a small proof that we did it this far and there's still a whole long long way to go. One thing for sure we know of, there will be lots of  making, crafting, sewing, packing, counting, meeting, putting ideas together in this little office/studio. We know we have said it million times before but truth be told, we couldn't have done it without every single one of you.  The plan was (and always has been) to have a work place that feels like home, and we did it. This is our home.
