Batik Kain Kami Announces the Launch of Batik Draped Kimono
Batik is soaked in a culture of carrying on untold symbolic stories by talented artisans. The techniques in creating the works of art were passed down from generation to generation. Batik has become the main attraction for the tourist industry in Indonesia; and it has become a significant aspect of the Indonesian economy.
However, one challenge that many artisans face is the lack of appreciation from the younger generation in the art of batik making. Batik is swirled in drabbed earthy tone colors (brown-yellow color made from trees) that have become unappealing to many younger generations up until its resurgence in recent trends.
Batik Kain Kami envisions promoting these storytelling textiles, bringing the joy of Indonesia’s finest artform by utilizing more playful color and unifying culture with modern movement.
We plan to innovate more contemporary designs and colors to attract more of the younger segment whilst retaining the heritage and culture of Batik.
“Our goal is to push Batik into the spotlight and bolster its perception from more than just traditional formal attire to become the nation’s pride. Hopeful to change people’s view as a Nation’s pride more than just traditional formal attire,” said Jacqueline Christopher, founder of Batik Kain Kami.
Batik is, and has always been an indispensable part of the Indonesian culture, and we’re thrilled to be continuing to keep this age-old craft alive. Uplifting crafters to become more financially independent and to encourage younger artisans to carry on the traditions of batik making.
