Casual street wear with a hint of the Indonesian nature


My name is Melle Bakker from The Netherlands and I have met Marieke Terpstra, three months ago when I was travelling in Bali on my own. We talked a lot about her fabric made from pineapple leaves. I was really impressed about that. Instantly I thought by myself, how can I create a product with that? So, I always wanted to do something with designing and clothing. I always wanted to design shirts. I thought about idea of how cool and unique it would be if I make a t-shirt with a mix of casual street wear and the fabric from pineapple leaves. So, I started to design something and made my first sample here in Bali.
