THE MARVELOUS BATIK ART

Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. Batik is historically the most expressive and subtle of the resist methods. The ever widening range of techniques available offers the artist the opportunity to explore a unique process in a flexible and exciting way.

At fashionmarket the elegant designs of batik sarees are designed by our young designer "Nethmi" and handcrafted by batik artisans. The unique designs are inspired though anything and everything like the nature, architecture or even geometrics. This one of a kind batik sarees will give you a unique definition when worn for different occasions of your choice.

Batik at fashionmarket is a mix of modern designs presented in a traditional form. You can pair it with antique jewelry for a contrasting twist to the modern batik designs at fashionmarket. The batik sarees can be worn as the "osariya" as well as the "Indian style" based on the design of the saree and your requirements.
