The "new" language of Batiks may break the barrier of traditional, handblocked batiks in Malaysia. With our very own experiments, we get to form a certain visual study on the impact of freshly, reinterpreted batiks as a wearable art. For months, we have replenish our ways of making batiks simply because we want solutions that are easier to handle,bringing the best in craftsmanship. From a tiny drop of wax, each layer of our handblocked pieces are meticulously made by our artisans which we often describe as "cathartic"-bringing together science, design and art in a textile medium.

We exists to bring new meaning and purposes to the art, modernizing old techniques to improve and strengthen our skills in batikmaking and at the same time, protecting our artisans future.
Fashion with mission
Our recent studies with local Terengganu Batik Artisans have made us realize that the Batik Terap of Malaysia or Malaysian Handblocked Batiks is slowly coming to an end. From 50 Handblocked Batik factories, only less than 10 now still exists in the whole state of Terengganu. By saving this art, we have made the handblocked method as an integral part of our brand, engaging our audience with a better understanding of the traditional art of Batik Terap. We hope to create more awareness through our batikmaking that exceeds expectations.
