Lombok Clutch

Using the intricate batik technique, this patchwork purse features a pastiche of vintage swatches gathered from lavish reclaimed robes. To create the original motifs, Indonesian artisans apply wax to fabric, carefully dye the material, then remove the wax to reveal delicate patterns in the negative space. The makers marry snippets of 100% cotton fabric from at least a dozen batiked robes to make each design, ensuring each one is as uniquely colorful as the woman who carries it. Handmade in Indonesia.
