We Empower People for
A Sustainable Society

Our Story

With the industrial influences of the 20th century, the Dutch aimed at producing simple, practical, and functional designs. This typical Dutch simplicity and high-quality handcraft has recently gained a touch of sustainability and anti-commercialization. In general, reusing old materials has been a key characteristic of the newer waves of Dutch design. Key areas of current Dutch designs include sustainable product design, the future of cities, and designing societies around inclusivity and well-being. This is also what Hinggi designs aim to achieve: equality, inclusivity, well-being, and sustainable society. In this project we aim to empower marginalized women and use old materials by upcycling waste and turning it into new innovative products. Hinggi addresses sustainability from the beginning, looking at the well-being of people involved in a fair and equitable manner as well as the care for the natural environment. Hinggi selects partners along the value chain with shared vision.


Ongoing Project

  • Up-cycle cotton waste into fabric which is sewed into clothing and accessories. 
  • We aim to empower underprivileged female artisans/weavers.
  • Everything is made by hand (with very low fuel energy usage, mostly green energy).
  • Funding from Stimuleringfonds.
  • Go to Hinggi's Projects to see more.

Cultural Heritage

Empowering Indigenous Women

Using natural color dye and traditional weaving technique producing a 100% hand-made home decor and clothing collection that is timeless and durable. Hinggi wants to introduce designs that accommodate the market need but also preserve the traditional heritage, simplify the production process, and remain efficient in material use.

From Waste into Gems

We are willing to take part of the development toward the green business. To achieve this goal, Hinggi and partners have been working together in an up-cycled cotton waste project. This project also aims to innovate new designs and explore new materials from up-cycling. There are two kinds of waste resources: (1) shredded textile waste, (2) dust from textile factories. This dust waste is generated in the cotton cleaning process in the surrounding textile factories. 

Our Indonesian partner has trained the underprivileged women to weave for preserving their weaving culture. Hinggi wants to go further with educating these women and introducing the concept of sustainable business. We share a similar dream to see changes for a sustainable society. We all want to preserve the indigenous cultures, natural environment, and to empower people.

Innovative designs

Hinggi believes that. “Good things take time, and Good things last.” The main innovation will be upcycled, natural, long lasting, traditional weaving, cultural related, and handmade products. This innovation will be built based on the principle of local wisdom, people empowerment, capacity development, and sustainability.
