Who doesn’t love a shirt dress? The Abby shape combines short sleeves, a tie waist, and a flared skirt to create a flattering, silhouette. The Big Hearts print has a beautifully feminine feel, with watercolour style pink hearts on an off-white base. Hand-finished in Bali using the ancient Indonesian technique of Batik, each garment slightly different making it that little bit extra special.
What is Batik?
Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Batik is made by printing the wax design onto fabric using a copper stamp called a cap. The applied wax design resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired. Due to the artisan nature of this process every Batik printed item differs slightly, making it unique and extra special.
