ANTIK BATIK

ANTIK BATIK

Since 1992, Antik Batik has produced elaborate ready-to-wear pieces requiring hours upon hours of expertise and artistry. It is her fascination for the finesse and dexterity of the artisans she meets through her constant travels that drives Gabriella Cortese to create and imagine garments made to be crafted, in diametric opposition to industrialised, mass-produced fast fashion, instead distilling millennia of traditional dyeing and printing processes – such as bandhani and batik – embroidery techniques, and weaving know-how. In the truest of tradition and with patience, tender care and devotion, the women and men with whom the designer has built relationships of trust and respect give life to the unique pieces that corral to form Antik Batik’s distinctive collections.
