The beginning of the collaboration is a unique robes collection, exclusively for guests staying at THE MURAKA. The collection called ‘Sleeping in the Ocean’ is designed by the founder of Robe de Voyage - Jessica Linklater and inspired by the reflection of moonlight on the waters of the Indian Ocean around Rangali island.

THE MURAKA is a special design immersed in the ocean. Launched in November 2018 at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, THE MURAKA invites participants to experience extraordinary life both on and below the Indian Ocean surface. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has taken advantage of Robe de Voyage to create something truly unique and ubiquitous as the destination for guests of THE MURAKA.

The collection of 'Sleeping in the ocean' is designed for both men, women, and children, as well as eye masks. Each product is woven by hand with the softest khadi from rural communities in West Bengal, India. This cotton is a particularly versatile fabric. It means cool in summer and warm in winter. Also it represents a slower lifestyle while supporting traditional and local textile production.

The prints were hand painted by Jessica in her studio in London before she spent time in Kolkata developing her paintings into green and experimenting with color palettes.

“I was very conscious of the light in the undersea residence. I didn’t want anything too overpowering that would conflict with the tropical colours outside the windows,” says Linklater.

Jessica was fascinated by the concept of sleeping in the ocean and the mystery of the sea, feeling calm and serene. Inspired by nature and travel, Jessica wanted to create a cool, cold feeling with no overall difference between men's robes and women's robes. Jessica has incorporated bold brush strokes into her final design.
