The Lumbatik Collection

These bags are lovingly made locally with Malaysian batik fabric. 'Lumbatik' is an original designed batik fabric by MareCet. The name 'Lumbatik' is derived from the combination of the words lumba-lumba (meaning dolphin in the Malay language) and batik. The batik design is inspired by the dolphin species that we study - the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin, and traditional motifs in Peninsular Malaysia where we work. Lumbatik is made in Kuala Perlis, a coastal area on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, where we study and conserve the dolphins.

 

The bags come in three colours:

  • Sousa pink

This colour is inspired by the colour of the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins (Sousa chinensis) that we study - the dolphins are born grey and turn mottled pink or completely pink as they mature

  • Samudera blue

Samudera means ocean in the Malay language. This colour comprises the colours of the ocean - different shades of blue with a hint of green

  • Monsoon Sky

This colour is inspired by the dramatic stormy sky over the sea during monsoon season
