Batik is a manually hand-drawn and hand-stamped batik technique. Amba Titik (fabric dotting) is the Javanese dyeing technique incorporated in our designs, where our fabric is manually hand drawn with wax to make a unique pattern and story. The making process requires artisanal skill & time that varies from weeks to months, binding the maker to their crafts spiritually. Each line and dot is a prayer, a charm for a good life and luck.
For upcycled collection, we create new clothes from patches or leftover fabrics that will otherwise end up in the landfill. Upcycled items are produced individually and in limited quantity, each stock depends on the amount of leftover fabric we sourced.
