The Jewellery collection "Pusaka" is featured in the "Shared Territories" article by Kathryn Lloyd together with designers like Olga Bogdanova, Rudi Edwards, and Crus Maria Vallespir.

 

 

On this article Lloyd wrote:

"Returning to their own roots for inspiration, MA Design (Jewellery) graduate Edwin Charmain has produced a jewellery collection inspired by Indonesian batik iconography.

 

Pusaka – meaning treasure or heirloom in Sanskrit – is a silver filigree jewellery collection which champions traditional, master craftsmanship. Charmain rejects the culture of mass consumption by using traditional hand skills in place of mass production and has created items for the modest fashion market.

 

Sustainability and the longevity 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. In response, 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.­"
