For eleven years Desak worked with a batik artisan learning all aspects of the process, from wax painting to dyeing.

This is so beautiful! Everything about this robe is perfect. Sizing, weight, design, and the batiking is unbelievable. The fabric is not only beautiful but is incredibly soft, lightweight and flowing as rayon can be. A fantastic value for a such a special item of clothing. It is truly a work of art! Thank you to the artist - this robe will always be loved and my favorite.
