BATARI SARONG MULBERRY (113x160)
Our sarong is much more than a simple accessory, it's a truly wearable work of art that transports you to a mystical elsewhere.
Batari means «goddess» in Indonesian and represents a powerful woman from a lost tribe in New Guinea: the Asmats. Her hand-carved wooden drum transports us to a real incursion into the Neolithic period. The high feathers that adorn her emanate something supreme, sovereign from her.
A note from the artist
In designing this illustration, I was deeply inspired by the mystery and majesty of ancient cultures. The Asmats, with their exceptional tribal art and connection to nature, fascinated me. In reality, Asmat women don't really have an established place in the Asmat community, and I wanted to bring them to the fore.
