The Weave dUCk


It was the most obvious inspiration for my Eid limited edition print; the delicious ketupat. The weave of the palm leaves, created by our ancestors, is an art form we should all learn and be proud of.


I remember when I was young, my grandmother and I sat on the floor with heaps of leaves and she taught me how to weave the ketupat. She told me stories of her childhood and we laughed together. Of course, she scolded me for my “deformed” ketupats, but that made the moment with her even more special.


Now that she is long gone, this Weave dUCk collection is a tribute to her. I’m sure you can relate with your own special Eid moments with your grandparents. Every time you wear this scarf, don’t forget to say a prayer or two for them. - D.
