About the speaker:

Lara Peeters and her story about batik and ikat is central to this webinar:

“Growing up, I saw a lot of beautiful Indonesian clothes, like my mother’s, for her Javanese dance. Or when we went to family weddings in Indonesia. Our whole house was covered with these beautiful rugs. A few years ago, I started exploring my Indonesian roots and learned more and more about this handmade textile and the artists who make these canvases with so much love and dedication. I even found out that my mother’s grandmother made Indonesian batik. I am so proud that this beautiful art is part of my family history. ” 

Lara started LARAS as a tribute to her Indo roots. With LARAS, she connects Indonesian fabrics, such as batik and ikat, to Dutch fashion designers. LARAS  proudly stands for representing our roots. See also: LARAS on Instagram.
