The timeless artistry of plain cotton fabric, woven for years, serves as the backbone sustaining many weaving houses across Indonesia. Appreciated for its versatility and stability, these rolls of plain fabric arrive as a blank canvas, inviting boundless exploration in our studio—a place where magic happens.
And there it stands, Benang Merah, our first embroidered design, crafted using a home-sewing machine to reintroduce this plain fabric into a series of collectible linens in your home. Benang Merah takes its name from the vibrant red threads that anchor the entire design, with lines of embroidery elevating the modest fabric into a chic yet simple flair.
Adorning the rims of our table linens—placemats, coasters, and napkins—is a pattern reminiscent of the lifting plans in weaving structures. This collection of Benang Merah table linens adds a layer of warmth and festivity to any dining experience, enhancing the allure of your tablescape with its refined simplicity. The base fabric is handwoven by pedal loom weavers in Pak Jussi’s house, Bantul.
