Affiliations & Roles

Co-Founder, Setali Indonesia

Intan Anggita is a movement builder using fashion and communication to catalyze action for social and environmental issues. She is the co-founder of Setali Indonesia, a growing social enterprise that carries the spirit of sustainable fashion and slow living. Setali Indonesia empowers the public to reduce fashion waste by inviting people to declutter their belongings and donate unused items to be resold or recycled. 

Intan has been recycling fashion since 2004. She began by running a fashion brand that fuses denim with ikat, an Indonesian weaving technique, to raise money for a website about inspirational people in Eastern Indonesia now called "Sight from The Earth." Because of this brand, Intan received the Kartini Next Generation Award in 2014 from the Minister for the Role of Women and the Minister of Communication and Information in the field of Art and Culture. After about seven years, Intan's brand evolved into a denim upcycled clothing line that uses fabric waste from local brands, product designers, and donations from people’s decluttered items.

In 2019, Andien Aisyah invited Intan to manage a foundation focused on sustainable living called Salur Indonesia. When Intan entered the foundation, she began to sharpen her focus on sustainable fashion and the field of fashion recycling. Intan now does both downcycling and upcycling, and makes Textile Art as a "closed-loop" fashion recycling effort. She often holds full workshops and is a speaker at sustainable lifestyle events. Most recently, she has been working on Textile Art in collaboration with Ikat Indonesia and Didiet Maulana and narrating the documentary film "Water, The Source of Life" produced by Anatman Production.

Intan's goal is to scale up her practice by building a website for Setali Indonesia and forming a sustainable fashion conference to bring communities together.

Setelah berusia kurang lebih 7 tahun brand tersebut berganti persona menjadi brand fashion denim upcycle yang menggunakan “fabric waste” baik itu dari brand local, designer produk atau donasi dari barang-barang decluttering siapa pun. Nama Sight from The East berubah mmenjadi Sight from The Earth.

Di tahun 2019, Andien Aisyah mengajak Intan untuk mengelola sebuah yayasan yang bergerak di bidang pola hidup berkelanjutan bernama Salur Indonesia. Saat Intan masuk yayasan tersebut mulai menajamkan fokusnya terhadap fesyen berkelanjutan dan mulai bergerak di bidang daur ulang fesyen. Intan kini melakukan downcyling dan upcycling bersamaan dan mulai membuat Textile Art sebagai upaya “closedloop” fesyen (melakukan downcycling dan upcycling di kegiatan bersamaan), ia pun sering mengisi workshop dan menjadi pembicara di event yang berkaitan dengan pola hidup berkelanjutan. Project terakhirnya adalah menjadi Textile Artist berkolaborasi dengan Ikat Indonesia dan Didiet Maulana serta menjadi narator dan inspirasi upcycle project di film dokumenter Water, The Source of Lyfe produksi dari Anatman Production.
