Textiles & batik for a good cause
Beautiful textiles of Indonesia
Tradisi is a lovely little workshop that sells hand woven and hand drawn batik fabric from across Indonesia. Not just from Java, Sumatra and Lombok, but from as far Madura, Sumba, Timor and Rote. Their products include batik and multiple styles of hand-weaving all made with natural dyes.
Tradisi is a social enterprise, which means that profits are used to support local community projects. In 2015, they partnered with the John Fawcette Foundation to provide hundreds of free eye exams in the weaving village of Pringgasela, Lombok.
The cushions are designed and sewn directly in the store and the income goes towards mentoring Nyuh Kuning women in small business skills. With the money they purchase their own sewing machine and learn how to market their products both locally and globally.
