GALA KIMONO | TANAH
- SIZE & FIT
Illustrated across in the humble colour of the earth, Tanah in Indonesian holds a meaning of the earth soil, an embodiment of an essential component of our ecosystem consisting a mixture of organic matters, natural minerals and organisms that together support life. Combining a traditional technique of wax-resist dyeing and intricate handpainted strokes, 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.
Handdyed using Beleric fruits to obtain the brown shade before being fixated with Copperas.
