Story Behind the Art: Approximately 500 artisans are working on the same craft across several villages. 80-percent - 90-percent of the artisans are marginalized women who work hard to earn a living for themselves and their families. Besides the problem of poverty, they also face illiteracy and lack of education, making it hard to market their products efficiently. This makes them depend on middlemen who often take advantage of them. After they started working as a collective of artisans under IFFAD, who supports fair trade, the artisans were not only getting a fair salary but were also given paid incentives once a year. They also provide scholarships for the children of the artisans through external funding. Handmade Expressions is glad to be supporting IFFAD and the batik artisans, since we are not only supporting the development of marginalized women but also fostering creativity. Our beautiful and detailed batik products are a testament of the artisans’ talent.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
