Product Story

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it does take a moment to be captivated by Bunga Persik’s charming innocence. A large checkerboard motif set in the thick plied yarns adds a chic touch to the subtlety of its light pink background. 

A celebration of a blooming season—Bunga Persik takes the air of your home into a field of spring. Soft in texture and bright in colour, its feminine charms are yet to be caught only by those with sensitive eyes. The base fabric is handwoven by pedal loom weavers in Pak Kadir’s house, Pekalongan.
