'My name is Desak Nyoman Parwati and I was born in Bali. I learned batik from Desak Putu Nithi in 1989. I love her dedication to her work and her concern for the people working with her. In 2000, I started my own art workshop. I create dresses from hand-painted batik textiles, with inspiration from fashion magazines, adapting them to Indonesian culture. I work with rayon, cotton linen and crinkle cloth. For the coloring, I use sulfur and remasol.
'I have built my career step by step. I started by asking my neighbors to come to my place to look at my collection and place orders if they like it. Now, there's so much to do, I need the help of several assistants!

I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A LOT ROOMER THAN IT IS. I AM A PLUS SIZE 18 AND FROM THE OTHER REVIEWS I THOUGHT THE CUT WOULD BE VERY GENEROUS, ITS NOT. IT CLOSES BUT NOT COMFORTABLY. THE FABRIC IS NOT AS SOFT AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE WILL KEEP IT ONLY BECAUSE ITS A HASSEL TO SEND BACKRead More

Yet another beautiful garment from Novica! So happy I picked up on this! Believe me, you won't be disappointed!Read More
I purchased one of these robes for myself, then one for my husband. All three of my children and their spouses are getting a Novica robe for Christmas this year. The colors may be a tad darker or lighter than what you see in the picture. The first thing I did when I received my first robe was to wash it in HOT water and run it through a hot dryer at home. It is the initiation of anything I want to try that needs mettle in order to hold up at our house. Not only do these robes come out of the dryer wrinkle-free, the wrinkles fall out quickly if it is hung on a hook or hanger. Both my husband and I get many compliments on our robes. My husband is a size 2X in men's sizes, and this robe goes around him and maintains a decorum of modesty around house guests. Because it is light enough to do light housework in and not feel encumbered or over-warm, my husband wears his robe every day to cook breakfast. It washes, dries and packs so easily, I know I would return to Overstock and purchase its replacement if it were ever lost in luggage. This particular robe will be for my son-in-law.Read More
