AND.M is a socially-responsible fashion label handmade in Java.
Working in collaboration with local artists, designers and seamstresses, AND.M blends modern and sophisticated styles with playful and contemporary Indonesian patterns. The result is a range of distinctive men’s and women’s statement pieces, from high-end fashion to classically-cut work wear with a twist.
AND.M inaugural range was launched by Northern Australian fashion designer, Matilda Morgan, in early 2016.

From the Founder, Tillie Morgan
“I have always loved design and colour. Growing up surrounded by my grandmothers textiles from around Asia, I have a special fondness for the colours, textures and stories found in traditional fabrics from cultures across the world.
Once I began my travels in Indonesia, I was stunned by the beauty, complexity and depth of batik and other handmade textiles found throughout the archipelago. I am constantly inspired by the artists and the motifs they produce through their innate sense of creativity and views of the world around them.
AND.M is my way of showing my appreciation of this artform and taking it to an audience that otherwise may not be introduced to it.
Working with different artists and producers from around the country, I continue to learn and be amazed. All of my designs have been influenced heavily from my life – from growing up on a farm in Australia to working in Indonesia. These experiences are molded into structures that will best show the character of the different patterns and their stories, as well as becoming amazing fashion statements, of course!”
