    Story Behind the Art:
    Indonesia's Arthur Karvan believes in offering high quality and unique designs. 'My goal is to design original batik of high quality. To do so, I search for the best silk, the best cottons, and the best linen for my work. For me, unexpected results are to be embraced as part of the uniqueness of handcrafted textiles. And I believe that the quality and beauty of my designs comes from the freedom of this approach.'
