New Collection at The Shop: Silk Batik Stole, Shawls, and Wraps 新作です!純シルク製バティックのストール、ショール、ラップ

Our New Collection of Silk Batik Stoles, Shawls, and Wraps

As I wrote in my previous post, the first project of our shop had started and we got the result.. yaaaaay.. (^O^)/


Over ten pieces of silk batik stoles, shawls, and wraps are ready to adorn you. (^_^)


The colors and batik patterns complement each other to create beautiful design. We chose batik style from West Java for this collection for its bright colors and cheerful batik patterns. From Tasikmalaya, we have four kinds. Each has one color: red, royal blue, yellow, and lime green. And from Cirebon, we have various kinds with some having more than one color tones.


As for the process, the batik artisans used a batik process called hand-stamped where patterns are created by using decorated stamps. The stamp is first merged on a tray filled with liquid wax then transferred on a piece of cloth to create patterns. When the patterns are done, they hand-dye the cloth and boil it to remove the wax. Since the stoles are handmade in such a way, you may notice the remaining fragrance of wax pervading from the stoles.


High quality silk was used to produce these pieces so that the outcome met the standard of excellent batiks because only with good quality fabric can good batik be produced. Not only it will make a beautiful piece but also comfortable to wear. Moreover, most the batik artisans would refuse to use bad quality fabric. They are very particular with this matter.
