Percaya

Our sense of smell is one of our strangest traits. Smells are known to evoke a particular emotion or remind us of a particular point in our lives.

 

When told to package this abstract scent I thought back to my family, well settled in an Indonesian

lifestyle. "Percaya" (Indonesian) : "Belief" (English) 

was a word that made a common appearance in my grandmother's many motivational speeches. I decided to captureher essence in this project.

A few "batiks" or traditional dyed cloths from my family's own collection, one of them made from scratch.
