Our ‘Batik’ line tells the story of my cultural heritage and highlights textiles that play a huge part in it. We have woven these beautiful pieces in small capsule collections throughout our brand and know you will love them as much as we do.
The nostalgia of meters and meters of silk hand-dyed saris being draped by my mother every morning before work, to date resonates in my heart. As a designer I am proud to bring this feeling to life through my brand and celebrate these artisans with the world.
What Is Batik? And How Is Batik From Sri Lanka Different?
Batik dyeing is a wax resistant dye process done by hand in Sri Lanka. What makes our Batik prints unique is that it goes back to our Sri Lankan roots so you can be sure of its authenticity and quality. Batik is a “resist” process for making designs on fabric. The artist uses wax to prevent the dye from penetrating the cloth, leaving “blank” areas in the dyed fabric. This process can be repeated over and over to create complex multi-coloured designs as seen in our range.
