Born and raised in Bali as a third-culture-kid to Swiss-Filipina parents, Karunia grew up inspired by local artisans, painters, her entrepreneurial family, and the raw beauty of her homeland. Karunia's creative path embodies a fusion of cultures, a love for design, and a deep appreciation for the environment. From a tender age, Karunia's heart was captivated by design, driving her to explore self-expression through the creation of her own distinctive wearable garments and experimenting in other crafts. Driven by her passion, Karunia ventured beyond the sandy shores of Bali and pursued fashion at the Rhode Island School of Design and later completing her studies in The Netherlands. Upon returning to Bali, Karunia's deep connection with nature and her artistic passions drew her to the island of Sumba. Here, she immersed herself in the world of traditional and heritage dying techniques using native plants, while learning from skilled master artisans. This craft instilled a deep, profound love in her, and Karunia became absorbed in the world of natural dyes, honing her knowledge and skills, and thus, RIMMBA the Brand was born. RIMMBA became the tangible manifestation of Karunia's dreams and passions for hand-crafting, creating, and her love of Mother Nature. Through her brand, she embraces and shares her personal love for weaving, designing, natural colors, printing, sewing, drawing, painting and various other crafts. This connection between her heart, humanity, and the natural environment became the essence of RIMMBA, fostering a unity that radiates through her artistry to the world.
