This week, we’ll discuss batik! Considered a national art in Indonesia, batik is a wax-resist dying method that involves spreading wax on a fabric and then dip dying it. The results are beautiful – unique, one-of-a-kind patterns are created by natural cracks in the wax and multiple layers of dye.
While most batik-style patterns in popular fashion are recreations of the real thing – the vibrant style still translates. Our India Ink Batik Skirt, while not genuine batik, is a flirty way to get a chic boho look this Spring. Do you have a fashion term you’d like brought to light? Let me know! Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
