    Meet the poet blouse, a charming batik shirt in a relaxed fit and just the right amount of balloon sleeves. The stand collar and slightly curved hem is a classic that keeps the look polished and versatile.

    To the Javanese the word bata, or bricks, displays the importance of building a foundation, and to the Chinese traders who arrived on the shores of West Java some six centuries ago, it was a symbol of prosperity. 

    Balloon sleeves come with an elastic cuff that give the wearer flexibility — wear it long, or above the elbow for maximum puff effect.

  • Hand stamped batik made by a family of artisans in Solo, Central Java. Hand wash on cold to retain its colours and beauty.

    - 100% medium-weight cotton
