The Overview

From a fashion experiment to one of Indonesia's coolest up-and-coming labels, Cotton Ink has come far since former high school classmates Carline Darjanto and Ria Sarwono joined forces in 2008. The two ambitious designers started with simple, printed T-shirts to make some "pocket money," then moved on to their signature multi-use throws, whose tubular shape allows them to be worn as a shawl, hood, belt or tube top. While their basic cotton knits may seem unremarkable in the country that gave birth to batik, it's their simplicity and wearability that have garnered an enormous following—the brand has been featured at Jakarta Fashion Week and won Cleo Magazine's fashion award for Best Innovative Local Brand.
