Behind the Design: Batik

Behind the Design Wednesdays: Every week Tea writes about our designers’ inspiration for our current collection of clothing. Explore all of our Behind the Design posts.

The art of Batik is practiced throughout the world, but Bali is the place most known for the artful practice. Batik is a wax-resistant dying technique used on textiles to produce beautiful designs. While in Bali, our designers had a chance to practice their hand at Batiking.

We knew we had to incorporate the breath-taking batiks into our Balinese-inspired collection.  The colors and designs naturally lent themselves to our girls dress collection.  Our staff favorite is our Lotus Batik Designs for girls.

However, we have plenty of Batik inspired designs for boys and girls in our spring and summer collections: http://bit.ly/GWvGiM

Will you be wearing Bali-inspired Batiks this spring?

    Glad you’re featuring batik! But Bali is not a country: it’s a small island in the country of Indonesia. And it’s actually a tradition/ technique brought from Java, where it originated.

      Great catch Tania! We just updated the post. The practice of Batik is so fascinating- there’s so much to learn! Thanks for stopping by.
