Bebe Sachi LE - Rebung
Rebung, named after the Pucuk Rebung (which means Bamboo Shoot) represents a young bamboo with strong foundations at its root. This is a traditional jacquard weave. At approximately 240 gsm, this baby is cushy, airy, moldable and perfect for warm weather. It stretches diagonally so perfectly. This wrap has so much of what we love about handloom wrapped up in its beautiful design. The rebung patterns of blue and white are sandwiched and interwoven together creating an air pocket effect between them. This is the uniqueness, which can only be achieved to perfection in a handwoven. Woven by our Khadi weaver who can only be described as pure genius and a master weaver!
The Rebung motifs are popular and often used in other works of art in our Malaysian culture and heritage – Sculptures, Drawings or Paintings, Batik prints, Songket weaving etc. The iconic skyscraper building in Kuala Lumpur aptly named, Rebung, also inspired the design. Its special curvilinear structure has its references in the work of the Malaysian sculptor Latiff Mohidin, the Pucuk-Rebung, that represents a young bamboo with strong foundations at its root. We do feel that it is reflective to what Bebe Sachi is - young but with very strong foundations.
