Materials

This garment is laid across a translucent crêpe-like material made purely out of locally grown cotton. All of the garments part of the Batik range are painted by Mas Ta: an environmentalist and painter who works from his independent atelier in the southern region of Yogyakarta.

Please note: this garment is hand-dyed with plant-based, natural dyes and, as such, each garment will be unique. Due to the lack of chemicals used, slight fading may appear where the dye may not have taken to the fabric. Wash this garment separately for the first 3 cycles, use a ph-neutral or low-ph natural detergent, and if you’re really dedicated, new pieces that need their first wash will have a better turn-out if a tbsp of ordinary ground salt is added to the water and left to soak for ten minutes. Follow our care guide for more instructions.
