Desak Nyoman Parwati from Indonesia

Artisan Desak Nyoman Parwati

"My name is Desak Nyoman Parwati and I was born in Bali. I learned how to make batik from Desak Putu Nithi, in 1989. When I worked with her, she taught me many things about textiles and hand-painting batik. The thing I like about her is her dedication to her work and her concern for the people working with her. On March 5, 2000, I started my own art workshop.

"I create various kind of dresses from hand-painting batik textiles. I get the inspiration from the fashion magazines. I take some designs I like from magazines and adapt them to the Indonesian culture. I work with rayon, cotton, linen, and crinkle cloth to make the dresses. For the coloring I use sulfur and remasol color.

"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!"
