The print on this Happykini originates from the island Flores in Eastern Indonesia.
For many generations the Indonesian people produce ‘ikat’, a very complex woven fabric that is highly valued in Indonesian society. This literal piece of art once was used for marital exchange and to define the networks of social relationships.
We have selected this traditional ikat cloth to process the beauty of the antique textile in our swimwear and printed this motif on high quality nylon/spandex.
Each Happykini is handprinted and the handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in colour and design.
When buying two of the same item, differences should be expected. Note: Colour differences may occur between this product and your screen.
By buying a Happykini you support the local handwork artists, from weaving lady to seamstress, in Indonesia!
