Our items are handmade in small quantity and not mass produced – therefore no 2 are iidentical. We will do our very best to fulfil requests for specific colours/patterns, but we seek your understanding if we are unable to. If there is no specific request, we will send you a random design based on the colour you have chosen.
Batik is a traditional, wax-resist textile dyeing technique inscribed as part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage. To date, traditional textile arts such as Batik and Tenun (weaving technique) still form the bread and butter of artisans in rural areas of Indonesia.
Against the backdrop of fast fashion where classical batik patterns such as parang and kawung often get replicated in mass productions of cheaply-printed fabric, aNERDstore aims to preserve this intangible heritage by promoting the reinvention and evolution of the use and language of Batik in modern everyday lives to preserve its relevance.
Each apparel and product we offer has a direct link to the human hands that made them, not machines (except sewing machines😊). We ensure our apparels and lifestyle products are made using fabrics that are original creations of the traditional methods: handstamped (batik cap) or hand-drawn (batik tulis) as a sustainable source of income for the artisans In Indonesia.
You reap the benefits in having long-lasting quality pieces. Because real Batik does not fade; it ages gracefully.
