"A True Piece of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Everything about this robe (Misty Javanese Forest) is exquisite: the colour is stunning and more intense than in the picture (did not fade a bit in a wash), the design gorgeous, the workmanship impeccable, the fabric very pleasant on the skin and the fit perfect, even for a tall woman like myself. I was so thrilled with this housecoat that I immediately ordered another one from the same artist. Parwati (I believe this is your first name rather than Desak), I found that Parvati in Sanskrit means of the mountains and is a goddess of love and power - I am honoured to be wearing your beautiful creation, which exudes these characteristics of your name. And NOVICA, the beautiful packaging together with the handwritten note with a few phrases in Balinese was very touching - like a present from a friend. This was my first purchase from NOVICA and it exceeded my highest expectations. Spreading happiness around the world indeed!

"My go to robe all year round"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The material is wonderfully soft and comfortable, keeping me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It looks great on and I am comfortable wearing it when I answer the door or someone stops by. Easy to wash on delicate, wrap in a big towel and dry by squeezing out excess water then hang up to finish.

"Perfect robe"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Having spent hours searching for a house-coat or-robe I could wear at home and when travelling, I came upon this robe, which, now that its arrived, I have fallen in with love. Its beautifully made, its colours are exactly as portrayed in the photo here, and it is even more substantial than I had anticipated. I can tell Ill get years of wear from it, and am thrilled with Parwatis work.

Bought this robe for my mom for Mother s Day. Very beautiful. Color pop is much more subtle in real life, only downside.

I ordered several different sarongs to give as gifts. They came beautifully wrapped and the quality of the material is very nice. The colors are vibrant. I prefer to order from local businesses or artisans to help support their craft.

"Stunning!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This robe is so soft, and the colors are exquisite. I love purple and green, and I feel very special when I wear this. I got it because I am going to visit relatives and wanted something to keep me completely covered, and this is perfect. The weight is perfect for warm climate, but also to keep the chill off in air conditioning. The sleeve length is perfect: not too long. I loved this so much, I went to the site and ordered another color from the same artist.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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 batik 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.

Desak Nyoman Parwati has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2800 and the most recent for $4000. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of textiles and batik dyes to increase production in time for the holiday season.

Through perseverance, Desak has grown her workshop. She now employs members of her family and give jobs to other artisans in her community.

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.

This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.

Desak provides for the education of her three children.
