COLLECTION INSPIRATION

Nature, our biggest inspiration, is something that cannot be experienced digitally. You need to feel it, breath it, to understand its beauty. For RORO-GREEN WATERS, Tosca was inspired by her fatherland: Indonesia. Growing up in Amsterdam, this paradise was a mythical story about the beauty of the islands, and culture, that always fed the designers’ imagination.

The bright colours of the fruits, the green tones in the vegetation, the reflections of the warm sun on the waves, the golden temples covered with colourful flowers and rice. One of the mythical beings in Indonesian folklore is Nyai Roro Kidul, the Javanese mermaid queen of the Southern seas. She is still worshiped in certain regions and is known as the beautiful yet powerful ruler of the seas. She’s dressed in green and gold, reflecting the tropical islands that decorate these warm seas. This strong feminine being is the inspiration for this collection, a new chapter in the TOS gallery stories.

ORGANIC COTTON

Soft touch, colorful, tropical prints. These are elements that we wanted to highlight in this collection of scarves. RORO-GREEN WATERS is our first story printed on organic cotton, a fabric which is very soft on the skin and slightly transparent, inspired by the waves of the ocean. Based on the Sirena once again, but with colours and details that reflect the new story. Together with our partner Scafos Denmark, who’s passionate about transparency and sustainability, we created these organic cotton designs, printed with the hand painted story of RORO-GREEN WATERS. With GOTS certified ink, naturally.

CHARITY

Indonesia is also called ‘the emerald islands around the equator’. The tropical treasures of TOS’ fatherland are not just beautiful but also crucial for our world. The rainforests flora and fauna are incredible! But their existence is threatened mostly for palm oil. That’s why for this collection we will donate to Greenpeace, who’s is very actively standing up for the Indonesian rainforests, because TOS cares about her roots, literally.
