Connecting North America to Indonesian culture through the method, stories, and history of traditional Batik
Solutions for here and abroad–Why we started
Once a widely treasured artform, traditional Batik in Indonesia is at risk of disappearing. The global demand for fast-fashion has led to fewer jobs and less pay for skilled artisans of the ancient craft. As new generations choose to work in fast-fashion over traditional Batik, the culture of Indonesia is becoming lost.
Founded in Vancouver, BC, Canada, The Batik Library is here to serve those needs both here and abroad. By connecting North America with Indonesian craft, we can improve the garment industry, empower the artisan community, and preserve Indonesian culture for future generations to come.
