The Overview

Mango, mahogany and Seri leaves are just a few of the natural materials used to tint the yarns of Pusaka's clothing, which hangs on rustic wooden racks and shelves in this airy space. The dying process itself requires nine steps: a series of washing, drying and tying to create the desired motif and color variation. And this is before the seven-step weaving process, which includes winding and looming until the preferred patterns are achieved. Fabrics tend to be uniform in color and slightly rough in texture, yet they're cut into utterly modern bias camisoles and wrap skirts. Great finds include the sleeveless, sage-colored Neo Mao dress with front slit and mandarin collar, and the cross-front empire-waist dress with blue, green and white zigzags reminiscent of Missoni’s signature pattern.
