Sarongs can be one of the most versatile pieces one can own. In Bali, they hold significant meaning as a sign of respect. They are used to enter a temple or to wrap around your waist to do the daily ceremonies. Men and women use them equally here in Bali. In fact, people utilise them for all kinds of ceremonies, celebrations and even town meetings.
The west has taken the sarong and expanded its usage. From a beach towel or head wrap, to use a top, a dress, a throw and even as a wall hanger.
Village Thrive has reimagined the versatility of the sarong and has created a fresh twist with its own signature designs.
In this shoot, we have played around with sarongs and have given them a new life, a modern interpretation of the classic sarong in all its glory.
