  • Vintage Black / Brown Batik Short Sleeve Shirt - Batik from Solo, Indonesia - Fair Trade

Our lovely Vintage Batik Shirts are the real deal.  They are made from high quality Batik, made by small craft producers in Solo, Java, the home of Batik.

Batik is a very ancient dyeing technique which involves stamping the cloth with hot  wax, then dying the cloth.  The areas with the wax do not take the dye, this technique is repeated for each colour.  This technique has been perfected over the centuries leading to some very intricate designs. In 2009 Indonesian Batik was recognised by UNESCO  as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

 As well as being a masteriece of Human Achievement, Batik is very durable and washes well, as the dye is absorbed by the fibres of the cotton rather than being printed upon the surface.

Our Batik shirts come in two exciting traditional designs; Black & Brown and  Yellow & Brown.  When I wear mine I get lots of complimentary comments about my Nelson Mandela Shirt, which being a fan of the great man, I appreciate!

They were produced for One World is Enough in 1999, and were misplaced in our warehouse and have only recently being rediscovered, so they are a genuine Vintage item.  However they are in pristine condition, having never been worn, but the great thing is that time has moved on and these designs are not being printed any more so they are pretty much unique.

In order to reduce our use of virgin resources, we are increasing our selection of Ethically Sourced Vintage Clothing.  Our Vintage range is strictly limited and when it's gone, it's gone!

Medium Shirt measures 42 inches across the chest  ( this is the size of the shirt so would fit 35 - 38 inch chest size), length is 28 inches, Large Shirt measures 44 inches across the chest  ( this is the size of the shirt so would fit 38 - 41 inch chest size), length is 29 inches & XL Shirt measures 46 inches across the chest  ( this is the size of the shirt so would fit 41 - 44 inch chest size), length is 30 inches.
