Speaker bios


Oniatta Effendi is a Cultural Entrepreneur. She is the Founder of Baju by Oniatta and owner of Galeri Tokokita.

A Singaporean by birth, Oniatta has always had a love for artistry. Trained as an educator, she taught for over 21 years in various institutions, including Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore Polytechnic, LaSalle College of the Arts, and secondary schools. She is also an applied drama practitioner and works with youth offenders at rehabilitative spaces, youths with special needs, children in welfare homes as well as ex-inmates with addiction issues at a halfway house.

Oniatta found herself drawn to batik on her many travels to different parts of Indonesia. Her personal journeys resulted in excessive purchases of batik fabric but also spurred her to share her passion for the craft and her desire to support the traditional ecosystem of this heritage textile. She started out with just 12 pieces of pants, uniquely designed to look like a sarong, at a pop-up. These Utama pants are today a bestseller and a cornerstone creation for Baju by Oniatta.

Oniatta dreams of documenting the voices of batik craftsmen from different parts of Indonesia as a way of preserving the trade and educating batik enthusiasts.  She is a mother of five, all of whom wear batik with nothing but pride.
