Behind every batik fabric is a story. Batik refers to the technique of making intricate patterns onto a piece of fabric. A delicate, time consuming artform, a lot of skill is put into designing each sheet. Look closely and each motif also carry symbolic meanings – and this is what owner Oniatta Effendi showcases with every collection. Whether it’s the Merdeka jacket with parang prints, which symbolise victory and power, or the men’s shirt adorned with the Garuda (a mythical bird), which represents masculinity, the garments you’re wearing all tell a story.
