Passion towards Indonesian culture and the will to preserve it are the reasons why Thresia Mareta established LAKON Indonesia. With the vision of bringing Indonesia’s handmade works to the worldwide stage, LAKON Indonesia’s existence was started with a fashion presentation titled The Chapter in Jakarta on April 2018. And afterwards, LAKON Indonesia consistently held yearly presentations which have succeeded in giving new life to the fashion industry of Indonesia and bring changes to the execution of culture preservation in Indonesia.

Every one of these strengthens her execution in every field she handles and makes this woman an inspirational figure who is consistent in preserving the nation’s culture through her efforts empowering the community from the creative side in the fashion industry.
" There is a concern... about Culture.
Indonesia has lost so many skills in art and culture. Even more during pandemics. It has become more and more fragile with the rapid development of technology.
We need to explore, reminded, and maintain our basic principle as that is our root, to be able to grow as a nation.
We believe that preserving culture is not about archiving but more of an action to preserve the "basic principle", the skill, and the craftsmen themselves.
How to pass it on from generation to generation.
To keep the identity alive... "
