A single lace item at this lightly stocked, minimalist store may take five or more days to create. Shirking volume for quality, founder Made Jati, who grew up in a poor fishing village, commissions local craftswomen to take techniques from temple-ceremony and dance-costume designs and translate them into modern wears. The intricate lace, stretched on bamboo hoops and hand-sewn using foot-powered rather than computer-guided machines, is tastefully woven into stylish threads that would turn heads in fashion capitals like New York City or Paris. Best buys include the standout Rosita, a black jersey racer-back dress with white lace overlay, and the simple Selma, a plain wrap dress with subtle lace detail on the flutter sleeves.
