We offer variety of homeware and décor goods in modern pattern and also Indonesia traditional pattern. Our collection of colorful pattern intends to make your home to feel stylish, warm, and fun. Most of all, we want to make your home happy. Our goods are mostly made from local resources by the hand of local craftsmen. Our small batch of goods, individually homemade, making them unique and special.
The name Kawung comes from one of the oldest patterns in Indonesian batik history. Kawung pattern is a rectangular geometric pattern made from palm trees flower and has many meanings in its use. Kawung means hope and hard work. It also teaches us how human needs to be useful in his life, society, and nation.
Having known each other at college, we start the idea of Kawung Living from our fondness towards home depot like Informa and IKEA. We love strolling around the place, fantasizing about our future home. At 2014, we began to explore our thoughts about living spaces, that became smaller each day and how that affected our way to utilize space. Having struggled with funding our first property, we long to find a furniture and decor goods that not only looks good but also affordable. We want to make your home feel welcoming to everyone who visits. We hope that Kawung Living will provide the goods that reflect you the most and you love at home.

We (Really) Love Color
In case you haven’t noticed yet, our collection contains various of happy bright colors. We are having an affair with colors too much and we can’t still get enough of it.
We’re Up to New Challenges
We like trying new things and playing with different materials and techniques. That’s why our collection ranging from canvas to batik prima, and from fabric to ceramic.
We Want to Preserve More
We always try to elaborate our traditional fabric in our collection, believing that we still have so many untouchable beauty between our rich culture and heritage.
When we take a leap to start Kawung Living, we’ve met a lot of people along our journey. Vendors, partners, acquaintances, friends. Most of them were women, very very inspiring women. They have been inspired our way until now, and we want to start giving back by taking these amazing women as our focus.
We believe by giving (and having) a job would impact the economic. Economic growth is the key to lifting poverty to prosperity. The proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” is true after all. By giving women the right tools, education, and resources, they are able to serve their own communities and transform it into a better future.
Every month, we will be donating our income to support Indonesian women. We will select some of our favorite charity/foundation/NGO that carrying the same message that we have.
We want to make your home happy, and if being happy is meant to share a little happiness with others, we want you to start with us :)
