PhD research on revitalisation in cultural significant product, pattern, and practices with focus on Textile design technology, Craft-design, and Resist dyeing technique specifically stitch resist dyeing.


I am a Ph.D. student at the School of Design, University of Leeds currently working in the revitalisation of Indonesian textile technique: stitch resist dyeing. Specifically, I am observing the practice of stitch resist dyeing among Indonesian craft-makers and explore an alternative methodology to revitalise the technique based on cultural aspects perspective.

Before starting my Ph.D., I have been teaching in Textile Design, Faculty of Art and Design, Bandung Institute of Technology, Bandung, Indonesia. My classes were Resist Dyeing (Batik and Tie-Dye), Fashion Research, Textile Surface Design, and Image Analysis. I have also had an eight-year experience as a textile designer, creating my fashion brand and producing several customized textile design for a private customer. I was actively participating in Indonesian government projects to support the Indonesian craft-makers in design and technical aspects.
