"Birthday present for myself!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I decided to treat myself for my birthday with the Ocean Symphony Batik robe. It is truly a treat! The colors are as represented, a lovely ocean themed combination of aqua, royal blue and purple with some lighter shades. Its a joy to wear. The fabric is nice and solid, but not heavy, stiff, or flimsy like some batiks. The fit is fine and very comfortable. I am most impressed with the craftsmanship, though. Every seam is enclosed, including the pockets and front placket and shaping seams. This type of french seam will ensure that no fraying occurs. I plan to enjoy this lovely robe for a very long time. Many thanks to the artist who created this beautiful piece!

"Wear this robe almost every eve. in warmer months"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A very nicely made, soft and flowing garment, has a feel almost like silk; and is cool enough for spring and summers; yet also gives warmth in transition seasons. It is a bit long for me, so I have to be careful going up and down stairs, being sure to lift the hem with one hand. I am average height, 5ft, 5 inches.

"Love my new robe"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very pretty robe with blue, purple and green. Feels very soft and light weight when wearing it. My husband thinks it looks great too. It is generously sized but does not feel like too much fabric. It washes well - I use delicate, cold water and let air dry. I am 5 9” tall so it does not come all the way to my ankles but it is longer than most at pprox 52” from center neck to hem. Thank you Desak Nyoman Parwati for a beautiful robe.

"The most beautiful clothing item I own"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

WOW! This robe is completely perfect in every way. Did I mention it has pockets!?! This is honestly the most beautiful clothing item of any kind that I have ever owned. So much attention to detail and care went into this piece. The colors and Batik are more beautiful than the photos. The photos dont do the piece justice, there is a beautiful ethereal quality to the colors. Green like light shining on leaves in a dense forest, the teal like clear lake water seen from a distance. It feels so special and natural. This is a work of art and couldnt be more perfect, almost like it was made for me! Thank you so much, I really couldnt be happier!

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.
