With a narrative that stems from the journey of Indonesia batik to the heart of its modern society, Pusaka highlights the dilemma for today’s batik community. Sustainability and survivability of Indonesia handcrafted batik in this global era are at risk due to the popularity of knock-offs created by the big textile and garment industries.
Pusaka rejects the modern culture of mass production and mass consumption by utilizing traditional hand skills and technique to create smaller numbers of individual pieces from Recycled Silver. Co-designing and collaborating with his local filigree master-craftsman from Kotagede, Indonesia, Charmain has invented a new filigree technique rooted in the traditional way of making.
One of a kind handcrafted silver filigree pieces on recycled sterling silver. Made to order, in collaboration with Filigree Master craftsman from Indonesia.
