AIDA STORY OF BATIK

Redefine the art of batik by adorning contemporary designs
to the time-honoured tradition of batik-making.

The traditional batik-making is a process that uses wax-resist technique that prevents the dye from spreading to the entire cloth, ultimately creating beautiful batik designs and patterns. The design is made by using a spouted tool called canting (or tjanting) to draw dots and lines on the resist. This is an artisanal and meticulous process that takes time to complete and yields intricate patterns.
Aida Story of Batik uses exquisite organic colourants derived from earth-friendly plant-extracted pigments that are applied on natural fabrics – silk, chiffon silk, organza silk, crepe silk, linen and cotton. This rekindles centuries-old applied art and traditional culture that have existed in the Malay archipelago since the 1500s, simultaneously creating individually designed pieces as expressive wearable art.
