Details

Artisan Desak Nyoman Parwati creates a casual dress filled with natural Balinese elements. Abstract splash patterns are created through a traditional batik dyeing process, which involves an artistic application of wax along with the tie-dying technique to create complex layers of color. Shades of plum, cerulean and lapis evoke a seaside feel in this design that has two in-seam pockets on both sides.

"Ive had more complements on these masks"

Weve enjoyed these stylish and durable masks through much of the Covid-19 pandemic. With Omicron being more transmissible, Ive reverted to KN-95s, but I will still use these in more controlled conditions.
