Craft is the epitome of one’s culture
Isti-mewa; which means special in Malay, represents the uniqueness of every pieces that is being created. Every piece is crafted with a purpose that resonates individual connection with the owners, as we are all – one of a kind, unique and special in our very own way.
How it Started
Isti-mewa is the brainchild of Syerie Zulkifli – an avid fabrics collector. Started off by producing small scaled production as gifts to friends and families, she then receives remarkable responds that turned into demands from new batik and traditional fabrics lovers among her peers. On August 2017, Syerie officially kick-start her business full time under her company ISTIMEWA GLOBAL – and the rest is history. Today, Isti-mewa is running at a remarkable rate, participating in local and international arts and craft events, with the help of five full-time craft enthusiasts.
