Women's batik robe, 'Jungle Waves'

Item # 37836
No longer available

Rippling like peaceful waves across a sea of jade and sapphire, these batik motifs disply rich variation in tone. Nyoman Nadri fashions this beautiful robe with a front-wrap style, wide sleeves and matching belt.

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.

100% rayon. Wash by hand in cool water, or machine wash with delicate cycle and cold water. Avoid drying in direct sunlight. One size fits all. Made in Indonesia.

Artisan: Nyoman Nadri

Artisan Nyoman Nadri

A mother of three children, Nyoman Nadri was born on May 2, 1965. She is an artisan of bed covers, pillowcases, sarongs, shawls, and many other textile arts. She started her career in embroidery in 1987, taking orders to make pillowcases and bags from 1989 until 1992. In 1995, she turned to batik when she learned it from a friend.

Nadri has worked hard for years to become as skilled as she is now -- to have an art workshop and people working with her had never come to mind before. A tremendously creative woman, she designs imaginative patchwork while ensuring her children's loving upbringing.

In doing her work, Nadri is inspired by people's needs. Her customers come to her and request the kind of motifs they desire, and bed cover or sarong sizes they need. She hopes her work will expand, which would enable her to help more people by asking them to work with her, because she realizes it is currently difficult to find a job.
