Batik has a long and rich heritage that spans centuries. The once passé art and craft, is now being revitalized as local artists through collaborative partnerships with Batik Boutique to bring a fresh perspective and modern batik for the world.
At the heart of batik design and motif is the story it tells as each pattern has a unique narrative or symbol. We draw inspiration from our tropical surroundings, and sometimes even a quirky play on Malaysian culture and food (think nasi lemak).
Batik Boutique is the forerunner of modern batik with prints that are simple and fresh that carry a minimalistic edge. They tell the story of the present generation both locally and globally while keeping the culture and heritage of traditional batik alive and thriving.
At Batik Boutique, you can find uniquely artisanal products like shirt dresses, camisoles, men’s shirts and boxers for men that entice both younger generations and encourages the older generation to keep supporting our Malaysian heritage.
In addition to young fresh designs, you can also access the craft of modern batik yourself with one of Batik Boutique’s DIY Batik Kits. These batik kits are great as gifts or even for personal use to help de-stress and bring out your own creativity.
Batik Boutique also provides varying workshops in-house on the art of making batik at their studio located at The Row. This is a fun group activity that enables individuals to explore their inner artist. Book a workshop to celebrate a birthday, bring family and friends together, build team dynamics with your employees, or customise your own products and designs with your company logo.
