Muntigunung Batik Scarves
In the remote hamlet of Pendem Kaja in Muntigunung, Indonesia, these beautiful scarves are handcrafted with passion.
They are a product of a social enterprise which trained a group of 15 community members in the traditional craft of 'Batik Tulis'.
The most traditional type of batik is called batik tulis (hand-drawn batik), where patterns are drawn with pencil and redrawn with hot wax using canting (a pen-like instrument consisting of a small copper reservoir with a spout on a wooden handle). The whole process of making batik tulis is complex and time-consuming.
This is part of a holistic poverty eradication program.
You can help the women of Muntigunung create a better life as 100% of the purchase price is given back to the Muntigunung social enterprise.
