The brand’s philosophy is beautifully and poetically illustrated on their captivating online platform, which gives the reader an insight into Relax Baby Be Cool’s authenticity…
“From the henna hands in the bright stalls of Jakarta, in the torn mochila over Singapore and Amsterdam, through the blue eyes of relentless seas with Estonian roots of knowledge and experience, Sparked from a situation, ironed with love, touched by the hands of a little magic, and pushed by the mountain.”
Authentic Indonesian batik emerges as the identifiable signature that continuously runs through the brand’s works. Their magnetizing patterns blended with an extraordinary love for chic, clashing colors is seen decorated onto a spectacular collection of relaxed, tailored outfits.
