THE STORY
Batik is one of the oldest resist-dyeing textile surface embellishment techniques in the world but can you imagine it in a brand new avatar on a t-shirt? The tees in this collection are made by artisans using a batik pen to draw freehand symmetrical stripes in hot wax on the fabric. Once the wax fully sets, the garment is dyed using natural plant-based dyes – like all garments made by Puducherry-based Indigenous Industries. The wax is then removed with boiling hot water and finally hung out to dry. An age-old process finds a new rendition and you get a chic, new addition to your summer wardrobe.

Indigenous Industries is a sustainable clothing brand that strives to promote Indian handicrafts with garments and accessories made using ecologically-friendly processes. The label’s products are made using breathable, handwoven fabric and natural dyestuffs like indigo, Terminalia Chebula for yellow, Indian madder for red, jaggery and iron for beiges and iron for black hues.
