About The Design
The symbols of Gili are borrowed from the puppets of Wayang Kulit theater, but the colors used in the design are evocative of the vibrant Hindu offerings, fruit markets, and colorful flora and fauna seen in various parts of Indonesia. White is used to create a sense of peace and serenity. The colors are inspired by the local village markets. In the early morning, vendors stack wicker baskets with fruit, spices, and flowers used for ritual offerings. The specific colors for this design are based on flower petals that we bought from a lady to give as an offering to Ganesha, the god of beginnings and remover of obstacles, after a visit to one such market.
Solanas are handcrafted, combining traditional techniques and modern sustainable methods. Using recycled fabrics, plant-based dyes, natural jute, and recycled ocean plastics, Solanas inspire greater love for the world and care for the planet.
