On May 17th, 2018, Starbucks celebrates its 16 years journey in Indonesia. From May 2002, we land our very first store in Indonesia at Plaza Indonesia to this day; the network has grown to more than 300 stores in 23 cities. And to celebrate its anniversary, Starbucks launched an exclusive anniversary collection of merchandise, collaborated with IKAT Indonesia by Didiet Maulana.

The collections include tumbler, tote bag, cup sleeve, pouch, and the iconic  Starbucks® Bearista which showcase Starbucks appreciation to Indonesia’s beautiful woven textile;  Ikat.  Ikat which means ‘menyatukan’, ‘persatuan’ is aligned with Starbucks mission and local values to be ‘United with Indonesia’. An elegant earthy tones with hues of green, yellow, and blue color palette is inspired by Indonesia coffee and the richness of Indonesia archipelago.
