Clareta Milena

Research Assistant

Indonesia’s traditional textiles hold a special significance for me. My deep appreciation for them originated during my studies in Textile Craft, where I concentrated on natural dyes and alternative textile materials at the Bandung Institute of Technology until 2023.

I am currently working full-time as a junior creative artist at a local Indonesian fashion brand. I am responsible for creating textile designs that incorporate contemporary twists on traditional Indonesian techniques and motifs, as well as designing accessories.

Joining the Tracing Pattern Foundation is a great step toward exploring different facets of the textile disciplines beyond fashion, to keep nurturing my passion for textiles, and connect with like-minded individuals in the textile community.
