Gala Kimono | Dunes
- SIZE & FIT
Like the flow of winds and rivers around us, Dunes invokes the natural gradation process of the lands around us where they level out by means of moving components. While the highlands are lowered through erosion, the lowlands are raised by the process of deposition. A fresh expression that celebrates the inspiriting odyssey of vernal season. Intricately hand-drawn with a traditional technique of wax-resist dyeing, this hand-dyed kimono is a unique painting work in collaboration with Mas Ta, our natural batik hand-painter. Working together in his atelier with the local collective of his village in Central Java, no motif is ever the same and no person will be receiving a carbon copy. This is the nature and process of our traditional hand painted batik, a beautiful creation that holds not only a tradition, but also the story of the makers.
This kimono has undergone several natural dye baths to obtain the rich hues derived from Indonesian Mahogany tree bark across this lightweight piece.
