Desak Nyoman Parwati creates a gorgeous wall hanging replete with stunning vibrancy. Multi-colored petals merge to form a floral mandala, ready to adorn any interior. The Balinese artisan works in batik, applying the precise patterns freehand.
For eleven years Desak worked with a batik artisan learning all aspects of the process from wax painting to dyeing. From her she learned not only the art of batk and textile design but also how to care for her workers. In her workshop Desak and the older artisans generously teach their art to the younger artisans preserving for another generation this UNESCO cultural treasure.
Through perseverance Desak has grown her business. She now employs seven members of her family and ten other workers.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Desak works hard to care for her three children and does all she can to give them a better life.
