“We at Älska were born and made wanderers. To explore the earth, to awaken quite alone in a strange town, to find new homes and friends in every place we set our foot on, to wander off a city and it’s marketplace, to speak in a new, foreign language; are some of the most pleasant sensations in our lives. We believe in stories, in history, in tradition and the way an object can come to encapsulate something much bigger than itself. Above all, we believe in the journey, in adventure, and coming home to a place where you can rest, reflect, and be happy.
Founded in Jakarta in the summer of 2014, Älska is the result from our dedication and passion for sourcing bespoke and eclectic pieces from our travels. Our extensive range of culturally inspired goods have been gathered and curated from all over the globe. We look for authentic characters, history, clever design, gorgeous textures, lovely patterns on items that are useful and as they are beautiful. It is our dream to bring the cultures of the world into the homes of our customers; your home.
Älska is the destination for you, our beloved customers and friends, who want a curated mix of clothing, accessories, keepsakes and home décor that reflects your personal style and fuels your lives’ passions, from fashion to travel to art to entertaining. We are committed to offering you signature products and unmatched service, both in our little humble shop in South Jakarta, and on alskahome.com.”
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have, if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru
