BIASA has been campaigning against the use of plastic bags since its conception, creating their bespoke shopping bag that boldly expresses this idea.
In 2013 the TRASHED bag was born with BIASA's support of the initiative between Kartika Sari Dewi Soekarno foundation and Kertabumi Foundation to spread awareness on the devastating state of plastic waste in Indonesia, and the public health and environmental concerns it sprouted. The project's keynote was the screening of an incredible documentary by Candida Brady with the same name: TRASHED which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for best documentary at the Raindance Film Festival.
This bag is a reminder that as consumers we must be mindful of our choices and if we think that waste is somebody else's problem, think again. Every piece of trash is recyclable when handled in the right way.
BIASA vows to match any sale of this bag, so 200% of revenue from this purchase will be spent on clean initiatives in Bali.
Born from an innate desire to bridge attainable luxury with extraordinary simplicity, BIASA is more than just fashion. Intricate detailing, creative artistry, and a high standard for quality fabrics set BIASA apart from fast fashion. An innovative fusion of fashion and art, BIASA showcases unique designs that adorn the body and exhalt the senses.
BIASA prides itself on intricate and skilled creative techniques that elevate every garment. All items are made by hand, with high attention to detail. Contrast stitching, hand cut and hand sewn appliqué, and hand crafted design tools such as block print are some of our signature brand trademarks.
Fabrics and textiles are the bread and butter of any fashion brand. Here at BIASA we ensure to use only the finest quality raw materials to match the high standard of our finished products. We work with 100% natural fabrics that we develop in collaboration with highly skilled artisans in India - honing in on a cultural heritage of textiles and traditional techniques.
