After 1830, Java entered a dark era of the high colonial period, during which noble women were restricted in their powers and required to spend more time indoors as prisoners in their own houses. While these drastic shifts caused tremendous distress, these women found solace and joy in crafts, letters, and household chores. This Steno Bag is a mini version of the Maker Bag, reflecting on the reduction of our ancient matriarchal influence. The name ‘steno’, from ‘stenographer’, comes from Melissa’s observation that these powerful women, like Kartini, had left intellectual hints for our awakening in their private letters. The bag also comes with a loop that can be attached to the separately sold Bien Strap, allowing it to be worn as a handbag, shoulder bag or sling bag.


  • The interior of the bag uses our signature lining. This lining fabric is a highly durable water-repellent fabric, created using the most advanced technology from recycled PET bottles and post-consumer materials.
  • Comes with a dustbag, made from pure cotton textile.

Hand-printed serigraphy textiles on unbleached (chlorine-free) cotton canvas, using eco-friendly water-based inks. For the handbags and accessories category, unless otherwise noted, each textile is protected with water-resistant Poly-Urethane coatings. Our hand-made production is certified by the Bluesign® system. This certification is a strict screening, designed to monitor the responsible use of resources, clean work processes, wastewater management, healthy air ventilation, and safety procedures for the workers as well as a safe final product for the consumer.

Due to our hand-made serigraphy process, every printing on each product is unique and varied from one to another. It is impossible to choose the printing of each product to be exactly the same on the showcased photos on our site or social media. These photos are for visual references of the products’ shapes only. The colours and alignments will never be the same from one print to another due to this manual labour.
