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.

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.

"This is exactly what I wanted!"
This item is beautiful, well-made and just like the picture. I had been looking for this type of robe to wear when it is hot and humid out for the past 6 years and I finally found it! It came beautifully wrapped with a lovely hand-written note. I really hope that this is an authentic, fair-trade company b/c I want to order several more items & cannot tolerate people being exploited. Thank you so much! I love it!!!
- Everyday wear - I can even wear it to dinner!
