My passion project..the batik I mean! 😅
Super stoked that I got to create this wonderful batik shirt for Roberto! @robertoguya
Using the finest quality silks specifically dyed, each batik piece was a labor of love ❤️ I've always wanted to create my own batik hand drawn fabrics, more than 10 years of dreaming and finally got the opportunity when I met this amazing batik master artisan. I gave her the specific design prints and colors using natural dyes frm nature ( not chemical colours ) which was the most tedious part of the process.
I wanted to create my signature style of relaxed elegance that comes to life with natural earthy tones which feels warm, authentic + versatile.
Gathering a beautiful palette of cinnamon, ocher, olive green and blue greys.
Deep red color made frm the mangosteen didn't arrive in time though. 😭
All done in 2 months which was crazy.
I hope you love it as much as I do and I look forward to creating more gorgeous batik pieces and keep our wonderful heritage alive and rocking. #batik #artisan #naturaldyes #sustainablefashion #silks #slowluxury #kavita #klfwrtw2017
