Born into fam­ily of tex­tile man­u­fac­tur­ers for nu­mer­ous in­ter­na­tional fash­ion la­bels, sis­ters Ratna and Surya Kuhn have spent their whole lives sur­rounded by fab­rics, pat­terns and sewing ma­chines. So it was only nat­u­ral the two sis­ters de­cided to start Paulina Kata­rina as they wanted to cre­ate a fash­ion line that is fun, flat­ter­ing and com­pli­ments a woman's body.

Through­out the years, they have launched sev­eral col­lec­tions un­der the Paulina Kata­rina line, along with the Ar­chi­pel­ago line that pro­motes In­done­sian tex­tile prints in modern day fash­ion. Their lat­est ad­di­tion is the launch of Wan­der­lust, their pre­mium re­sort line. Wan­der­lust's first col­lec­tion, Amalfi Dreams, was show­cased at Jakarta Fash­ion Week 2017 as they are part of the pres­ti­gious In­done­sian Fash­ion For­ward fifth gen­er­a­tion. The sis­ters have had note­wor­thy high­lights in their ca­reer as they were se­lected as fi­nal­ists for the Most In­no­va­tive Fash­ion Brands at the Cleo Fash­ion Awards in 2015 and awarded ROLE MODEL Busi­ness Woman of the Year 2014 by Bali WISE-ROLE Foun­da­tion. Ratna and Surya re­cently opened Paulina Kata­rina's first and sec­ond store in the heart of Seminyak and Ubud, Bali.
