Batik Poet Blouse | Nakhoda
- Textile & Composition
Nakhoda is the captain of a ship. This beautiful word in the Malay language is still used today to describe seafaring folks in the Malay archipelago. Featuring the Ceplok motif, depicting the destiny of a person resting on his/her honest work.
Our take on Nakhoda is in how we steer our lives in the direction of becoming: Unafraid, with deep faith and courage.
The poet blouse is a charming batik shirt in a relaxed fit and just the right amount of balloon sleeves, that come with an adjustable elastic cuff to wear long or above the elbow. The stand collar keeps the look polished and versatile.
