This lightweight batik sarong jacket is inspired by our floaty batik sarongs. It has tassels down the edges of the open front and 3/4 length sleeves. Perfect paired with jeans, over one of our boho tops, or with a flowing hippie skirt!
All Mexicali Blues batik items are handmade in Bali, Indonesia, by artisans who have learned this ancient traditional art as it has been passed down through the generations. Each hand-batiked piece of fabric is created by blocking out selected areas of the cloth by brushing or stamping hot wax over it, and then dyeing the cloth. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. Often, the fabric is dyed once before it is batiked, allowing a complimentary color to show through the stamped or stenciled pattern. We just love the way this process makes every Balinese batik item we sell a one-of-a-kind work of art!
