About This Technique

Batik is a wax-resist dyeing technique that is traditionally created through a series of dots and lines drawn with a spouted tool called a canting. This craft holds its origins in various countries, from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nigeria. However, it is the batik of Indonesia that is renowned. Indonesian batik is the most developed in its pattern, technique, and quality.

This is the very first artisan technique we worked with outside of India, it took us 3 years before we began exploring the craft. Connected by a cause, our first batik creations was a capsule collection of versatile wraps made in collaboration with Aarika Lee and SukkhaCitta. Handcrafted by the artisans in the Jlamprang village, all proceeds were given back to them in an effort to sustain their economic freedom.
