ARTISAN DETAILS 

Batik Boutique is an award-winning social enterprise created to disrupt the cycle of poverty in Malaysia. We train women from low-income backgrounds to produce gifts and fashion accessories made from a traditional Malaysian fabric called batik. 

Batik is a traditional art form that uses wax to create intricate, unique, and amazing textile designs.  We work with rural and urban artisans throughout Malaysia to create amazing, high-quality products in designs you'll love- it's like wearing art.  Each purchase helps weave a global impact story.

First, we work with artisan families in rural Malaysia where they create batik textiles on natural fibers.  The artisans use layers of wax and dye to create the designs in a labor-intensive process.

Next, women create ethical fashion and gift items with this fabric in our sewing training center. Today, more than 150 artisans work with Batik Boutique to gain a fair, sustainable income and marketable skills.  Each purchase directly benefits the artisan who made it.
