About SOE Jakarta
SOE Jakarta’s designs explore the potential of Indonesian traditional handwoven textiles infusing them with modern, urban aesthetics. Most pieces in our collections use textiles developed after intensive discussions with weavers from different parts of the archipelago who create beautiful fabrics on traditional handlooms.
Texture and artisan-made details are SOE Jakarta’s passion and each collection pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved through experimentation and exploration of new
materials and techniques. One of the collections explores concepts of topography and landscapes, which Monique Soeriaatmadja, the Creative Director, dedicated to her late
father, a professor of Geographic Information Systems. Each undyed strand of handspun cotton yarn was manually laid and woven in with random gaps to create beautiful textures
inspired by landscapes.
Ultimately SOE Jakarta aims to create clothes with a story, everyday wear that is easy to wear and easily fits into a modern woman’s wardrobe. By juxtaposing beautiful labor
intensive fabrics with modern and technical fabrics, SOE Jakarta reimagines classic silhouettes with a unique quirky touch, a perfect fit for women who desire tradition without
losing their modern flair.
