When madebywave founder and antique collector Victoria chanced upon an original Sumba throw in an antiques shop, she was inspired to make the island’s traditional techniques part of her debut sarong collection. The Sumba Blue sarong was born.
With the island of Sumba famed for her strong weaving traditions throughout the generations and a traditional colour palette in indigo blue with shades of white, the sarong’s entire aesthetic has its roots firmly planted in local island life. The vintage-style, traditional Indonesian pattern balances beautifully with the white and blue striped edges to balance the Western-Eastern influences and enhance a sense of global community.
Handmade with love by Indonesian master craftsmen using entirely natural fibres, the Sumba Blue sarong tells its own colourful travel story. Every sarong has been hand spun and dyed, left to dry and then hand-woven into its final pattern. Each unique element has been completed in the remote Indonesian jungle by skilled artisans, using techniques treasured through the generations.
Luxurious, eye-catching and soft to the touch, the Sumba Blue sarong is the perfect statement travel piece. Keep it handy en-route as an extra layer and for a lovely colour pop. When you reach your final destination, wear it as a sophisticated cover up around far-flung cities or add a flourish to your luxury beach style.
Each sarong arrives beautifully wrapped with a colourful ribbon to create the ideal gift for yourself or someone special. A timeless design completes your travel wardrobe with the ultimate piece of resort wear. Keep the Sumba Blue sarong by your side and create your own adventures across tropical islands, white sand beaches and far-flung cities in remote corners of the globe.
