The Island Gallery
rana helmi

Rana Helmi, educated in Indonesia and Europe, has been designing textile fashions in her studio in Bali, for the past two decades. Her collection incorporates a wonderful interplay of color and motif, reflecting the vivid colors of the Asian tropics and of Provence where she lived during her university years. The hand drawn batik incorporated in her designs comes from collaboration with Indonesian and American batik designers working in cottage industries in Indonesia. She does a limited number of pieces as she works on them directly. Each is a unique work of art. In addition to The Island Gallery, her fashion designs are sold to a devoted clientele in Indonesia, Singapore and Paris.
