Hand Drawn Batik Fabrics collected over the last 40 years
by Jurgen Lehl & Manami Okazaki

This collection includes batik of many different styles & places
like Java, Sumatra & Sulawesi.
Some come from cities some from villages.
Some are for daily wear, others for special occasions
like weddings or local ceremonies.
Most are dyed with natural dyes such as indigo madder or soga.
We are showing a large variety of textiles from
multicoloured and intricate to simple and bold,
never worn to very old & beautifully mended.
To get an idea please have a look at the slide show below.
