Indonesia is home to some of the world’s most well-known batik fabrics. Many of its islands have motifs of their own— celebrating the local flora, fauna and folklore.
'Parang' is an ancient motif from the island of Java.
There are a sea of stories about the origins of 'parang'. Some say the design was created hundreds of years ago by Sultan Agung of Mataram while meditating on the Southern coast of Java. While tide up in its beauty, his inspiration came from the stream of waves continuously crashing up against the rocks.
And this continuous diagonal design has been making waves throughout Indonesia ever since.
So we wanted to make shore to share a piece of 'parang' with you too...
Here’s to taking an extra moment to sea life’s beauty and to feeling good—because after all it’s Friday!

PS. We are current’ly releasing a few more fabrics to celebrate the arrival of a new spring sea’son!

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?
Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders).
More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
