Sojourner

 

Sojourner - a collection to appreciate the sojourners of our world, by people-centric brands Narrative Made and SukkhaCitta.

Today where division strives, we call for kindness. We call for the embrace of differences and diversity - the sojourners, the ones from a different culture and background, the ones with a different habit, a different language, diet, or prayer routine. 

Narrative Made and SukkhaCitta have joined hands to bring you this capsule collection to appreciate the sojourners of our world. Inspired by the generous posture of harvesters instead of picking up dropped grains they leave it for the poor and the foreigners living among them, it voices the idea that abundance should be shared. 

The collection features natural indigo dye and hand-drawn batik from the hilly mountain village of Jlamprang in Central Java of Indonesia. 

A men and women resort collection is coming this summer! Watch this space!
