BORU, WITH THE WEAVERS OF JEPARA
BORU, collaborating with a weaving community in Jepara, Central Java, specialises in inspired pieces and designs from traditional Batak cloths and motifs or ulos. By doing so, they seek to introduce Batak culture to contemporary apparel, accessories and home decor. BORU is an advocate of slow fashion and strives to uphold values that champion social responsibility, environmental care and empowerment of local communities. BORU’s designs use natural dyes, with colour experimentation continuously explored to create a variety of future products that do not require synthetic colours.
