This Kawung-inspired Batik Shirt is a comfy and durable shirt to wear to work, on a date, or to a surf contest.
Kawung is an old motif from Central Java and Jogjakarta. It takes inspiration from the kolang kaling fruit and lotus flower, creating a girdle arranged on four square corners representing longevity and purity.
Image of Culture
Batik is Indonesia’s 2,000-year-old national fabric that wears eye-catching characters etching the archipelago's history, values, legends, and stories in each piece.
The fabric serves as a medium to quickly identify the roots of each print by the symbols and folklore surrounding the islands’ regional differences. The material and design also embody the identification of gender, age, social status, and ceremonial rituals.
Batik is the best material on the planet. The fabric looks sublime, extends beyond the visual appeal, and is unique and culturally significant.
"Clothing is an extension of your personality, and sacred batik designs are an extension of your soul." ~ Brent & Derek
The craftsmen and craftswomen, who make this beautiful fabric, take much time and pride in ensuring that each shirt is flawless—a timeless material and unique ageless expression.
We celebrate Indonesian Batik by providing everyone an opportunity to experience its sublime artistry for the tradition’s perpetuity.
