What’s In My Box: Batik Boutique

Batik Boutique

Brand Highlights: Handmade in Malaysia, Women-led, Socially Impactful

Batik Boutique is a social enterprise that began with a friendship between Amy and Ana, a single mother, who at the time was looking for more income to support her family. Batik Boutique was founded on the belief that women like Ana deserved a fair and sustainable income, and the ability to provide for themselves and their families.

Thus they set out a vision to empower hundreds of artisans from marginalised communities by offering them a fair and sustainable income producing beautiful, high-quality fashion, home goods and accessories made from a traditional Malaysian fabric called batik.

Batik Boutique works with rural and urban batik artisans across Malaysia to create batik textiles on natural fibres. This fabric is then sent to the seamstresses at their training centre to create the products. Through this model, they are able to alter the circumstances of marginalised communities by providing employment opportunities, sustainable incomes, and skills to achieve financial independence.
