TIPAT AND SIlvER COllECTION

CULTURE OF ADORNMENT
AND DECORATION

Make A Scene’s Tipat and Silver collection is inspired by the ancestral Indonesian

‘Ketupat’ weaving technique. A shift from large scale installations and objects to more delicate creation of adornment and body decoration.

 

“During Covid when there were no work commissions forthcoming, we had to dig deep to preserve our creativity and ensure our time wasn’t wasted”

 

 

Tipat Collection

DESIGNER INSPIRATION

Simple versions of small ‘tipats’ can be found amongst ceremonial decorations made by Balinese women on a daily basis. MAS’ highly skilled team of artisans have paid homage to this intricate method of weaving, precise cutting and shaping of the lontar leaf by combining it with sterling silver to create intricate, contemporary pieces of sustainable, wearable art.

MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES

Handcut lontar leaf and woven tipat pieces within bespoke, delicate sterling silver frames commissioned from expert silversmiths

Filigree adornment

This subtly elegant headwear highlights the purity of the individual tipat pieces. The exquisite daintiness dresses the hair and frames the face. A finely hand-carved bamboo framework enhances the lightness of the piece. Positioning can be styled by the wearer

DESIGNER INSPIRATION

Mirroring nature: the delicacy of flora, florets ,miniature orchids, rice heads (padi).

MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES

The weaving of our lontar leaf tipat calls for a high degree of precision in the intricacy of the pieces. As each individual piece is handmade, uniformity of the standard is crucial.
