"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.

"My New Favorite anytime dress!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Loving rayon makes this an automatic 7 (out of ten) but the style leaves room to move comfortably, stay cool in Texas summers, and the side pockets are the last item that seals the deal! Roomy and large enough for i-phone and keys, I dont buy a dress unless it has pockets anymore.Of course the green and blue color scheme is a great combo for me and shoulder straps allow for bra to be worn without straps showing. LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!

Best Uses

  • Shopping, lunch date, walk on the beach or lounging by the pool; this comfy shift is wanted in multiple color blends!

"Extraordinarily Beautiful Dress. I will Treasure It."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the most beautiful Batik dress I have ever owned. The Tie-Died Batik print is gorgeous, and the colors are stunning. It is just as bright and breezy as it looks in the photos. The rayon fabric is cool and so soft. The fit of the shoulders and neckline are perfect on me, and the sewing is incredible. Every stitch is even and all seams are neat and beautifully done. This is the best dress I have in my closet. Nothing tops the workmanship and beauty of this one. I love rayon! So it?s my favorite dress in every way! Thank you so much for your hard work and the love and care you put into your craft.

Best Uses

  • Breakfast, lunch or Dinner out

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.
