Clutching onto the Nation’s Textile Heritage

Good things come in small packages. In Lungsin’s case, it comes in the form of clutches. The emerging Indonesian brand showcases a collection of handheld purses as well as other lady bags and accessories, all bearing weavings of Songket, one of the nation’s celebrated textiles. This material is nothing short of a national heritage entailing hefty cultural significance and the inherent expectation for a worthy end result. We speak with the creative mind behind Lungsin, Aulia R. Rusdi, to find out all about it.
