We are proud Bandung local line, we think the culture of this city is the best meme of life. It is the most authentic way to reflect ourselves as a brand with strong character. In the process, it’s more like a gift, we say. Like a gift, the surprise is half the fun. We really enjoy what we both discover. We connect our own habit and philosophies. Our character is different, but as the story goeswe have something in common: the spirit and energy. So there, you will see us as anemotional polyphony of Maternal and Wellborn. And let’s sing the praise for Iannocentas a part of this collab by being the artist. We knewon how he responded this project, he will be able to tell our fellowship stories on our behalf, becoming an essential journey of a perfect pairing. Wait. Are these words making any sense? This project can go beyond language. You tell us. There is always another side of it, but one thing that you’re gonna agree: our collaboration is a genius poison.

His meticulous working process have served as inspiration, particularly when it comes to his story telling that often invited us into his signature, the dark psychedelic imageries and skulls for a chat. On this project, Iannocent reveals the other side of him: the tranquility among his previous aggressive piece of arts. He dwelled with a neverending lines of something unfamiliar respondingthe beauty of low lying cloud and mist of fog.
