Our distinctive upcycled products (Java Collection) are handcrafted from recycled tire tubes from local stores (Java, Indonesia). At the end of our crafting process, each item is cleaned and coated with essential oil, which is naturally deodorizing and antibacterial, creating a long-lasting fabulous finish to our eco-friendly products. Partial proceeds supports Water Conservation Campaign in the area.
"Purnama" means Full-Moon in Bahasa Indonesia - Our hope in providing a light for those in need.
