"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.

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.

This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.

Desak provides for the education of her three children.
