Dark shadows ripple across Prussian blue seas and periwinkle lagoons in a magical underwater motif. Inspired by Balinese art and culture, 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 handpainted batik robe is a truly original work of art. Sunlight, water, dye and temperature all factor into the look of the finished robe. This should be considered a unique design made especially for you. Colors and pattern placement will vary.

"On A Blue Note"
Today my ? Through The Seas?, robe arrived. I bought this for my sister, who is turning 70 next month, and like orders I have placed in the past, I want to keep this one as well . ? Beautiful, as well as comfortable, this unique robe is one of a kind. I like knowing that all the robes and jackets are made individually. They are cut, printed , colored and sewn, so no two are alike. You feel special walking around this beautiful robe.
