Preserving Culture with Batik Danar Hadi collection
Danar Hadi Batik Raden Saleh launched both men’s and women’s wear, the “Padma Caitra” collection, which features white-on-white batik and also a batik Solo edition. As Eid Al-Fitr represents the holy month, Danar has used unsaturated, soft coloured batik in this collection. Batik Solo pieces come in earthy colours such as brown, yellow and other natural colours.
Batik enthusiasts can discover the entire collection at the Batik Danar Hadi store in Raden Saleh. Danar Hadi has also launched a batik scarf collection that can be used creatively, as part of one’s accessories or even a dress.
Demonstrated by Neneng Rahardja, attendees at a recently held fashion show learnt various creative processes with batik scarves, even mashing up the print. Danar Hadi presented a number of scarves in his collection including those made from silk which adds a touch of elegance to any ensemble. There are many discounts available at this time of year.
