"I have built my career step by step. I started by asking my neighbors to come to my place to look at my collection...."
"My name is Desak Nyoman Parwati and I was born in Bali on October 3 1972. I learned how to make batik from Desak Putu Nithi, in 1989. When I worked with her, she taught me many things about textiles and hand-painting batik. The thing I like about her is her dedication to her work and her concern for the people working with her. On March 5, 2000, I started my own art workshop.
"I create various kind of dresses from hand-painting batik textiles. I get the inspiration from the model magazines. I take some designs I like from magazines and adapt them to the Indonesian culture. I work with rayon, cotton, linen, and crinkle cloth to make the dresses. For the coloring I use sulfur and remasol color.
"I have built my career step by step. I started by asking my neighbors to come to my place to look at my collection and place orders if they like it. Now, there's so much to do I need the help of several assistants! High thanks to what Novica is doing in promoting artists to the whole world, especially artists from Bali."

I just received my 'Green Baliku' batik robe. It is fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing your art with us.
Desak, I have received my beautiful robe, wrapped as a wonderful gift from you, along with personalized card. Thank you for your attention to detail in your work. I am very impressed with the quality, for the price. Living in Hawaii, I have access to many beautiful items, but your designs and quality far surpass anything I have found here. Good luck to you in your busines. I feel you will become bigger and better as you continue to produce quality products. Mahalo Nui Loa. (Thank you very much) Marie A, Maui Hawaii
Hello Desak, I have been looking for rayon robes like yours for a long time and finally found yours through Novica. I have just ordered my second robe from you and plan to order several more in the future. The workkmanship is superb, and wearing them is relaxing. I hope to meet you in person next time I travel to beautiful Bali. Lisa
The robe is absolutely beautiful. I would like to say Thank You for putting so much care and love into the product. I am ashamed that I cannot say the same about alot of the U.S. products online. Your gift wrapping was also very beautiful. Again. Thank You.
The robe that I ordered from you arrived just now and is perfectly lovely, a gift I will be proud to give my new daughter-in-law on Christmas morning. Thank you for sharing your talent!
Thank you, Desak, for sharing your talent with the world. I received your 'Ginger Poppies' sarong today. The sarong was everything that I had hoped for when I viewed it on the Novica website. It is even more beautiful up close and personal. This is one of those truly lovely pieces which will received abundant compliments when I wear it. Many blessings! -Debra

Dear Desak, I bought nine robes for Christmas and I just received them. They all are gorgeous and very well made. Thank you so much for offering your wonderful work, many people will enjoy your robes on Christmas morning. Thank you again :)
The Blue Orchid robe created by Desak is so elegantly designed, and the colors so saturated and shimmering. I love to put it on each day.
I purchased one of your lovely batik robes for my niece who says she feels like royalty when she wears it. Thank you so much. Best wishes to you and your family.
Exquisit workmanship, beautiful robe, wrapped so beautifully! Hope you have much success :)
I've just received the Seaside Blue robe by Desak Nyoman Parwati. Upon opening the package, I thought that if the content was as beautiful as the wrapping I'd be perfectly delighted. And I am! Perfectly made - just as described. Thanks so much for making items like these available.
I received my Paradise Peacock robe today and I just love it. I washed it on the gentle cycle and it came out beautifully. It is so soft and the colors are so vibrant. It feels good next to my skin. I was very impressed at the detail and care taken to wrap the robe as if it were a gift from Desak. Thank you so much. I know I will enjoy this robe for years to come.
My batik robe from Desak Parwati is stunning, and it arrived in beautiful packaging from Bali. It is also quite practical, with details not shown like belt loops and side pockets. Brava to Desak and I'll be back for more lovely and wearable art. Namaste'
FABULOUS ROBE AND WRAPPED BEAUTIFULLY - A REAL TREAT TO RECEIVE AND VERY SPEEDY DELIVERY - THANK YOU -CATHERINE.
My sister asked for a wrap style robe for Christmas in a light weight fabric as she just moved to Arizona. I searced and searched for something I thought she would like and that I would enjoy giving. I found your robes and was immediately enchanted! They were functional yet artistic and unusual. I chose one that came in a shorter length (my sister is not very tall) and marked ""gift"" on my order form. It came wraped with a delightful decoration and ready to give. My sister loved it! She put it on and wore it all day on Christmas!
I am so pleased with the quality and beauty of the robe I received. It's perfect!
Ms. Desak Parwati, your batik work is VERY beautiful! My friend was totally thrilled when she received a special, carefully wrapped package which presented your colorful robe as a textile jewel. Thanks very much for all your dedication and hard work! K

Hello Desak, I absolutely LOVE your work....the silk jacket I received from you is so beautiful. I will wear if often and will gladly give your name and endorse Novica so others may enjoy your clothing. Thank you again.
I ordered the ""Turquoise Ocean"" robe. It is well made, nice fabric, washes well, it fits well, however I am disappointed because the color is not as bright and vivid as the picture. But I can live with that.
What a beautiful package! And then inside a perfectly lovely robe, exactly what I need for a trip. The robe is extremely well made, from a beautiful batik...and feels good on....Thank you! ellie vermillion item 47710
My wife loved the batik robe. She was happy with the fit and how comfortable the fabric feels.
Dear Desak Parwati, Today I gave your exquisite robe, ""Tender Purple"", to my Goddaughter for her birthday. She was ecstatic!! Her 8-year-old son thought it was so magnificent, he begged to try it on -- and pretend that he was a king! The beautiful box is so great, as well. Thank you for helping me make a very, very special day for a very special person! Best wishes, Katherine Donovan-Sherpa Charleston, South Carolina, US
Dear Desak, I was so thrilled with the black, hand-painted blouse you made for my daughter, and the gorgeous batik robe that you made for my Goddaughter -- I went and ordered robes for 8 other women, all of whom are very, very special in my life. They were shipped all over the US, from South Carolina to Virginia, to Maryland, to Michigan, and to Washington state. Each and every recipient has called me, raving over the BEAUTY of your robes!!! I am so grateful to you, to be able to make such wonderful gifts, to so many dear friends, for such reasonable prices. Thank you so much!!! Katherine Donovan-Sherpa Charleston, SC P.S. Please make some more painted blouses! They are absolutely EXQUISITE!!!
I just wanted to say how delighted I was with the ""Dandelions"" shoulder bag which arrived yesterday. Thank you so much for something so different and even the beautiful presentation with the delightful Balinese character. It is a real Internet find and a big thank you.
Dear Desak, I purchased the Women's batik robe, 'Blue Baliku' as a little ""gift to self"" after my husbands departure to Iraq. This was so beautifully wrapped and presented from your company with such pride! The robe is amazing! I wore it this morning for the first time and didn't want to go to work! Thank you for helping me feel so special during a very difficult time!
Dear Sesak Nuyoman Parwati, Today the kimono robe Emerald Beach arrived and I'm very happy with it. The colours are totally different from the picture on Novica, but i'm still loving it. The kimono robe feels soft, good quality and is well made. I thank you for the way you made this robe. My compliments. With friendly regards,
Thank you for the grand robe. It was just like getting a present from a new friend~the wonderful way that it was put into a beautiful box, wrapped and decorated so perfectly and then the colors, scent and softness of the cloth when I opened it~it was breathtaking, and the whole process made it so special that I saved everything so I could remember what a good day that was. Every time I put it on, the world looks all right. Mahalo nui loa, ~River

My crimson robe just arrived and it is beautiful. The package alone was a work of art and the robe only enhanced it. Thank you for a quality product and excellent service.
your designs on your robes are so beautiful. I love the material and the design. If I could afford it I would have at least 1 of everything you make. Thank you

Such beautiful work -- the imaginative variety of designs in this artisan's work and the colors she chooses are superb!

Thank-you so much for the Blue Baliku robe and the Violet Garden silk jacket. They are both quality fabric, well sewn, and fit well. They are useful, wearable (and I wear them often!) and comfortable. More special, people (including me!) are literally stunned by the beauty of the jacket garden design. And I've begun wearing the robe with various jewelry and scarves to harmonize with the wealth of colours you've used in your batik art; your batik is so pretty it just naturally goes with pretty things at any time or occasion. I would love to see you do more jackets, and caftans.( Some other Novica artisans make fine caftans, but too shear to wear any where but the bedroom or the beach.) I imagine your caftans would be as fine as your robes are! Best wishes to you, and thank-you again --- I'm having a lot of fun with your apparel!

Better late than never! I received my beautiful robe many months ago but at that time wasn't aware of opportunity to leave testimonials. The gorgeously designed and crafted piece is regal!!
I ordered the 51415 Women's batik robe, 'Green Baliku' & it arrived quickly from Bali. To my surprise, it came in a long fabric pouch with a lovely draw string, a classy tag & a lovely small post card of Bali in an envelope. The Robe is beautiful although the colors are bit more subdued than the photo op on line--still very beautiful & true to Batik process. So classy, one could wear it as along duster over flowing rayon pants and a top with cute heels for an evening soire dining al fresco! Thank you for such a beautiful, comfortable fabric robe & timely processing of my order! Bless You! Lorraine Sexton Northern California
I received the Green Baliku robe and absolutely adore it. The material is good quality and the design is exactly as it looks in the picture - beautiful. I also love the traditional caftan with wide sleeves and hope Desak considers making some from the batik material. I will buy all of them!
Beautiful robe. Perfect in every way.
The batik robe ""sea of Shadows"" was my first purchas with novica and was amazed at the quality and beauty of Desak's work. In fact, I am wearing the robe as I write this testimoniall. Out of the few robes I have and love, Desak's robe is the first one I reach for. My love of batik fits in with Desak's design and eye for beauty. Would like to order more in the future. Gretchen
I ordered the ""seaside blue"" and "" Turquoise Ocean"" robes intending to choose between the two and send one back--unfortunately, they are both so beautiful I cannot possibly choose and will be keeping both. I almost gasped when I first unwrapped the seaside robe--the colors are much more vibrant than they looked in the picture. The workmanship and the presentation in the batik bags is wonderful. I think almost any woman would enjoy receiving one for a gift. Thankyou Desak for your wonderful work!
I have SO FAR purchased three of your beautiful robes. I feel happy when I wear them because they are so comfortable and wonderfully made. I have become obsessed with them and hope you will continue to add more robes to your line.
I love the print on my green baliku robe. The fabric is magnificent!. The charming fabric bag it came in is a wonderful extra too. thank you for your beautiful work.
Dear Desak, The Blue Anemone robe is absolutely beautiful, and I love wearing it now that the weather has gotten warm. It's extremely well-made, very roomy and comfortable, with pockets (important for me!) and belt loops. The color and print are exquisite. It arrived surprisingly fast, contained in a cloth bag of another beautiful batik print. I would recommend your creations, and this robe, to anyone, for self to feel luxurious and for a gift to delight the recipient. Thank you for your artistic spirit, which allows me to feel so good!
The vivid colors in the Turquoise Ocean robe are gorgeous! The quality of the workmanship is outstanding and the robe is the perfect weight for our hot Georgia summers. Thank you for a great product!
I have become addicted to your robes and wear them even in the winter when it is very cold. You are very creative and I love your creations. Have a wonderful day.
