GESIKHARJO: Hand-drawn Batik

In the coastal village of Gesikharjo in East Java, Batik skills have been passed down through generations of women.

With no access to market, they often sell their fabrics at a loss through middlemen
just to get immediate cash to support their families. 
Our initiative here began with a capacity building in natural dyeing.
We invested tools, materials, and conducted a training to reduce reliance on synthetic dye.
