THE BATIK MAKERS
Batik is an art where skillfull artists hand-decorate cotton cloths with wax. It's a long process, you have to be very patient: after they put all the wax on the cloth, it's time to put the cloth in the dye bath. It can take days till months to produce a cloth. Wow! The tradition of batik making was handed down from generation to generation, what a beautiful gift to learn from your mother!
Batik is part of my family heritage (my mother's grandmother) and I feel obligated to help sustain this beautiful art. Out of respect for the makers and the art. We only use handmade batik made by local artists. Some of the cloths are vintage pieces from our family donated by my Oma (grandmother) Oetje and my mom.
