The Batik Boutique
Love handmade designs? Batik is about as ancient as they come with a 2,000-year history steeped in tradition. Dye-resistant wax (beeswax and resin) is applied to the fabric by hand or with a stamp (for repeating patterns), which is then dipped or painted in dye and the wax boiled off to reveal the design.
The Good Factor: Batik Boutique is changing lives in Malaysia with their family-run businesses that give employment and training to women who are enabled to set their own hours and wages. A portion of profits is reinvested back into their communities for healthcare, financial literary, and education.
