BataviaBySil is a Hamilton-based Fashion Accessory line, owned and created by Sil Frebrian. Established in 2010, it quickly became one of the well known handmade fashion accessory businesses in Ontario, Canada.
Each handbag is lovingly handcrafted by Sil in her Hamilton studio at the historical Cotton Factory, using reclaimed designer’s upholstery materials and rescued clothes.
Sil was born in Jakarta and raised by her artist parents. She has been having passion in art and design since a very young age. Her passion in sewing magically grew later after she became a mother.
Nature is her main inspiration in creating, every piece of her work has its story.
Sil loves traveling, sports (karate, kickboxing, swimming) & music.
