A Timeless Essential

A good design is timeless, aesthetically pleasing, sustainable and environmentally friendly. It also brings the best out of its materials all the while fulfilling its functional purposes. Matoa, an authentic Indonesian label by Ilham Pinastiko and Slamet Riyadi, ticks all the right boxes with their ecofriendly yet practical lineup of wooden accessories — think wristwatches and preppy bowties.
