Natalie's dresses are made from hand batik printed silk. Batik is a centuries old craft performed by the finest artisans in Indonesia. This painstaking process involves the technique of manual wax-resist dying. Once the fabric is painted with wax designs, it is placed in a dye bath where only the areas with no wax are dyed. The wax is then removed with boiling water, and repeated if multiple colors are desired.
Because this process is all done by hand (not one machine involved) and then dried by the sun, you will find some color and printing differences between fabrics and products. This is what gives our collection its unique charm, and makes each piece special.
