Java Upcycled Solutions™

Take Part

in the Protection of a Sustainable Environment

for Future Generations


We provide Java Upcycled Solutions™.  Our expertise lies in designing using up-cycled and repurposed, organic and natural materials.  We work with local artisans employing traditional craftsmanship and sustainable methods.  

Our partnership with artisans in Indonesia (Java) in producing hand-made up-cycled fashion and utility products not only supports the campaign on the issues of water conservation in the area and its neighboring countries; but also providing employment opportunities.   

We are a slow fashion brand and maintain extreme high quality in our materials, workmanship and design aesthetics.  At Purnama, we directly collaborate and provide revenues for our artisans and directly administrates extended donations in our impact communities. 








In our project, we use waste material from tires, plastic shopping bags, army tents and others; where we carefully design for our artisans to hand-cut into our unique beautiful product of jewelry, accessories and bags.


Material: Tire Innertubes 

Tires are normally stockpiled or dumped illegally, creating not just an eyesore, but a breeding ground for mosquitoes and carrying diseases.  At times, tire is burned and the burning can last for months creating massive pollution in the air and ground.  The rubber can be up-cycled for variety of uses, such as soles for shoes, floor mats for home, and much more.  (Click here for more information on scrap tires as an increasing concern)

Recycled tires are easily available due to its abundance as waste, and have various advantages over craft recycling compared to other materials. The advantages include a strong, durable, resistant to water, and the unique appearance of the leather-like craft.  More than 50% of all irrigation water in Indonesia is consumed in Java.  


Material: Single-Use Plastic Bags

Recent research finds that a person uses a plastic bag for a carrier on average for only 12 minutes, and only recycle one plastic bag in every 200 used.

The project is to minimize the harm from plastic and other discarded materials by transforming them into sustainable fashion.  

We work with a community that is located nearby a big textile factory, where waste handling is of great concern and the eyes are turned to upcycling excess materials including single use of plastic, specifically plastic bags.


Supporting Artisans Communities:

We have extended our involvement with the community "Planting for Life" (Komunitas TUK - Tanam Untuk Kehidupan) with its mission "to plant sustainable environmental awareness and education in the community through art and cultural practice".

Through your philanthropic purchase of Java Collection, we are able to support a community that is building their livelihood through new skills development which promotes a cleaner environment and fund children's education in the area.




We are at a start of our journey in planting the seeds, together we can make a difference.
