Batik Open Jacket | Damar
The Damar brings deep significance in its motif of the Parang Boket. ‘Boket’ meaning a bouquet of flowers is juxtaposed with the parang motif, traditionally a symbol of strength, protection and honour. Damar is the metaphor for a woman — femininity is power and a force to be reckoned with. Also available in the Wulandari Jacket.
The jacket is fully lined for a luxurious feel, yet lightweight enough for any day of the week. Features drop shoulders, 7/8 sleeves and two pockets at the front.

About The Brand
Gypsied is a conscious label from Singapore that transforms heritage textiles into beautiful products for a conscious lifestyle. Exploring the intersection of culture and identity in modern times, Gypsied breathes new life into batik and handwoven textiles in their designs. Each product embodies a positive new narrative for today’s women — conscious, thoughtful and open to new experiences.
Since 2013, Gypsied has discovered rural communities in South East Asia where textiles continue to be a vital form of expression and textile-making a way of life. Supporting these guardians of tradition plays a vital role in the brand, as they work to both maintain the region's collective heritage and contribute to a sustainable standard of living for artisans.
Gypsied works closely with textile artisans, textile cooperatives and expert craftsmen. The personal relationships they build and maintain with their partners form a big part of the Gypsied brand today. This process of sourcing and production is in tandem with a climate of growing awareness in ethical production and sustainability.
