Haloed on a serene sea of Pacific blue, abstract motifs appear in the intricate tonalities of batik. Nyoman Nadri creates this graceful rayon robe with wide sleeves and a matching belt. In traditional kimono style, the robe features openings under the arms for adjusting the robe and for ease of movement.
Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax is painted by hand onto areas where color is not desired. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and the process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.
This hand-painted batik robe is a truly original work of art. Sunlight, water, dye and temperature all factor into the look of the finished garment. This should be considered a unique design made especially for you. Colors and pattern placement will vary.
