vintage batik, indonesian textile, indonesian fabric

Several weeks ago I quietly debuted my new Dering Hall storefront; as of today I’m officially opening its (virtual) doors! The completing addition is the first batch in a collection of vintage Indo European batiks from the studio of IndoArts. These textiles are amazing works of both artistry and craftsmanship — and just like the other items represented, they combine color, texture and composition in captivating ways.
