Established in early 2016, Kal Akkara focuses on forging and crafting accessories, drawing inspiration from various cultures of Indonesia. The diversity of the nation's culture and its rich historical root are the key elements of their design and ideas, displaying a wide range of modernized accessories. Preserving traditional craftsmanship, each piece is handmade by local artists and craftsmen to achieve a quality differs from that of machine-made goods offered as a lifetime companion.
The name is taken from two Indonesian words, kerakal-stones and akar-roots which are two natural materials playing a big role in the concept of the brand. With its physique, the stone represents a strong and durable foundation reflected in their material of choice. Concept wise, roots symbolize the nation's rich historical root of diverse culture and it is the main influence on their design and ideas.
The two put together creates a brand which showcases a modernized silhouette of early ethnic accessories able to endure the test of time, a true timeless artistry.
Available on online but a visit to the workshop is much appreciated to build a better relationship between the craftsman and the customer. It's also rewarding to visit the workshop as there is a wider variety of beads to choose from and sizes to try on (for ring and bangles). Kal Akkara also wants to give the customers an experience in trying out different combinations as they strongly suggest each and every one of the customers to custom-make their own to express personalities through it.
The products range from IDR 100.000 to as much as IDR 4.000.000 depending on material, model, composition, etc as they are all sold separately. For more details visit kalakkara.com and follow their Instagram @kal.akkara.
