"I frequently visit the fabric
shops in Bali and see if there’s anything that would suit Moran
and if I would wear it myself."
WHAT ARE THE VALUES BEHIND MORAN?
“From the fabrics we choose to our production standards and our packaging options, I am always conscious about what we do to be less harmful to mother nature. I use only local and natural fibres such as cotton, linen and hemp. I also choose to produce small quantities with limited runs and reuse leftover fabrics.”
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FABRICS?
“I frequently visit the fabric shops in Bali and see if there’s anything that would suit Moran and if I would wear it myself. Most importantly, I always choose natural and rare fabrics for my collections.”
WHAT DOES MORAN ATELIER MEAN TO YOU?
“The original. I wanted to re-use and re-create something that works for me and for the space. All the furniture and doors are antique. We made the work table out of shelves we had at home. I’m so happy to see how it all came out and I love spending time here. This space was create for our guests to come try things on, have a tea and a relaxing time outside of the busy Canggu.”
