the unfinished business

Greetings!


About a week ago, T - our Fashion Stylist / Director - paid a visit to a Batik Exhibition and Workshop in Indonesia. She went to the exhibition to earn more knowledge about Indonesian batik (which is apparently very broad). From her: "It was a pleasure meeting Mr. Rusydi a Madurese batik artisan and Mrs. Indra who was my lecturer back in uni who is now aside of teaching she is also an encourager at Mbatikyuuk - an Indonesian independent organisation which purpose is to spread the words about Indonesian batik."





T also went to a batik workshop which was held by Mbatikyuuk. She tried to draw her own batik pattern and wanted to make an actual batik material ready to use to create a garment. But unfortunately, she was not able to finish the process because of her tight schedules... Oh well! From her: "My magic touch didn't work! It was very difficult to put the wax on the fabric. And I would need to draw on both sides of the fabric. It surely is very intricate and time-consuming. Guess for now I better off designing the ready materials."

Sadly, my phone went flat before we get the chance to take photos of ourselves.
(...and all cameras were left in the car; guess we were just really hungry afterall.)

the first 5 days at home

...a personal post by T in plain simple english.

It was a long flight, but I'm finally here now at the best spot in town called "MY HOME".
Image: Kemang Pratama Residence, Bekasi.

So, here I am, and missing Australia already. Why? Well, I wouldn't say I was that disappointed because I knew it was coming; my internet connection has been very slow and breaking down which is why I have not been able to do my work properly. This is my first blogpost since I had reached here 5 days ago. 

That being said, I have had everything figured out and my schedules are in place, hopefully everything goes smoothly until when I will have to go back! SO EXCITED! *fingers crossed* xx

The net connection was being nice with me... Facebook is now live!

stepping into the boredom

...personal post by T in simple english

Travelling much? You'd know what I mean by "2 hours of boredom". Oh well that's alright I guess, I'm still hanging on comfortably in my heels and that's what's important right? And the boredom kinda pumping my blogger-blood up. Posting from my mobile; find a few snapshots from the bore-ding room (also a couple shots from when I was about to step out of the house - and when I was on my way)

See you in Jakarta now!

x T

Got 3 heavy hand-carry! It's my lucky day that they let me through!

My nail comes in the way? It's ok I like it, it's plum-ish. x

On my way

Just being excited!

procastifashion

...a personal post by T in plain english.

Oh my, I have been sitting on my desk for 2 hours with my eyes on Youtube. Gotta admit that I could spend hours on that addictive site especially on the FashionTV channel! I could be so hooked up that there would be no such things called breakfast, lunch, and dinner.. (Don't judge me, I know! Haha.) 

Well, there was a sole purpose of actually opening it in the first place which is to get some inspiration for my upcoming designs (collaborating with my lovely designers! credits go to them).

FOLLOW! 

Speaking about designing, Batik Batik will hopefully reveal its next collection before Christmas! Meanwhile, enjoy our 50% off discount on all items, free shipping and +++ more surprises from Batik Batik e-boutique! Oh dear.. who would want to miss such a beautiful thing?

Anyway, me's back to work. Have a sweet night guys! xo

batik: an exquisite wearable art

So we guess batik is spreading it's wings. In fact, "it's a world-wide phenomena" says Dave Raya freelance ethno-photographer whose passion is to create understanding between the people, cultures, civilisations, faiths & world-views of our globe.

Do not mistaken batik with printed fabrics. Although batik has been internationally acknowledged and actually being used by quite a few local and international designers in their collections, many people still see it as a tropical flowered piece of clothing instead of a work of art. The methods of creating batik are very intricate, it makes batik stands out of the crowd; and naming itself, an exquisite wearable art. x

And it took off...
