Batik printing is a method of wax-resist dyeing – an ancient art form originating in Javanese culture. The cotton fabric used for dyeing is originally a natural, off white color; then small drops and lines of wax are applied to the fabric by master artisans – the fabric is then dyed with natural indigo. After dyeing, the wax is scraped by hand – revealing the patterns under the wax. On a trip to Burma, Will discovered 100 rolls of 75 year old indigo batiks which were intended for ceremonial dresses. Paired with an eco-friendly, vintage leather, Will designed a tote that represents an ancient, global art form combined with the rugged, timeless durability.
