Enigma Art Textile or better known as Enigma is a Hand Made Indonesian Natural Textile in contemporary look, influenced by the affection between Art and Textile, founded in late 2016.
All the fabric is made by 100% Organic Fiber with the process of handwork by Indonesian
master artisan in Central Java and Bali where our textile is made with traditional technique one at a time (Hand Weaving in contemporary and traditional designs, Batik, Tie Dye, Hand Painting, Screen Printing, etc). We do this by producing less with small batch manners. As such we are hand-made, there may be variations in size, colors, thickness, etc. This gives each product a unique and meaningful look and is part of the story and branding of Enigma brand.
Developing Circles of Sustainability is part of a larger project called ‘Circles of Social Life’ where we are related one to another on this community and environment to be better.
This is one of our mission to keep these circles of sustainability.
There is just one Mother earth (Pertiwi) and all their entities and we love her. So, not just socially good but we’re trying to be nice to her also.
We really appreciate manual work because there is a process of imperfection and a soul that is transferred to each product. Hand made work have a soul of their own, it gives a humanist value.
We do this by producing less with small batch manners. Carefully select every natural materials, maintain every process by our own eyes and hand (also heart) and resulting in functional and multi purposes refined goods. Artists and makers carefully source the materials to create the textile products. These materials then become the root and intention for their objects and form as designs are given life by the physical characteristics of these native materials.
Enigma hopes to celebrate and encourage the artisans and makers who have dedicated their live’s work to honoring craftsmanship, textile, tradition, and the local arts/community.
