Suwitra designs and creates elegant wearable art through his unique ability to capture nature's beauty.
Ketut Suwitra was born into a family of rice farmers, their village bordering with a jungle in west Bali. The youngest of four children, he tended to errands with no opportunity for schooling beyond elementary grade level. Long walks through the jungle fostered in Suwitra a deep appreciation for nature, animals, color, and the beauty of the natural world.
Beckoned by the opportunity for employment, at 19, Suwitra, his brother and his sister transmigrated to Sulawesi Island. Yearning for his native Bali, he returned after a year to pursue an interest in the local Balinese arts and crafts.
The colorful fabric market of Denpasar gave him a new sense of design and marketing. His five years there also instilled newfound confidence, and he eagerly seized the opportunity to work and design for a foundation in Bali as their boutique manager.
The lure of the unknown called to him four years later, and he accepted a one year work and study program in the mountains of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. He returned to his beloved Bali and soon got back to work. Suwitra designs and creates elegant wearable art through his unique ability to capture nature's beauty.
Suwitra masters batik and silk screening techniques as well as and hand-painted motifs, which he transforms into colorful sarongs, scarves, and stylish, comfortable, clothing.
I love this tunic! It is just long enough. The colors are wonderful. It is light weight. Simple classic style!
To Ketut Suwitra ... I Love this Top! The colors (wine floral) are beautiful. Fits perfect and comfortable (soft). Was packaged in a beautiful drawstring bag, with mini postcard ""Greetings from Bali"", (personal ""thank you"" from ""Selamat Pagi, Apa Kobar and Terima Kasih). Very kind of them ... I am glad to have made the connection ~ Thank you
I ordered and received the robe 'Bali Weave in Blue' and I must say, I absolutely ADORE it! The fabric is so soft and comfortable, it feels so much better than the department store robes I already have. The sizing is good, even though I am 5'11"" I feel like it is a good length for me. The pattern is so unique and quite eye-catching without being gaudy in any way, and the cornflower blue hue is very pleasing to gaze upon. This is my new favorite robe, thank you!!
