Visitors to Bali usually begin their journey in the island’s capital of Denpasar. This thriving city is home to a large percentage of Indonesia’s craft studios, and the handmade batik fabric that Bali is known for can be found in markets and boutiques throughout the city.


In these summer-ready cotton shirts—perfect for Bali’s hot and humid climate—the patterns are created by hand-stamping and hand-drawing wax onto the raw cloth. When the cloth is dyed, the wax-covered areas resist the color, letting an allover palm leaf pattern emerge. When the fabric is dry, it’s boiled to remove the wax, and goes through the process as many times as necessary to achieve the desired result.


Handcrafted in Bali, Indonesia. 100% cotton lawn. Men's sizes M (38–40), L (42–44), XL (46–48).


Machine wash.

    Comments about Indonesian Palm Batik Shirt:

    One of several 'world' shirts for tropical travel I've bought from NG. Green on black version is lovely, soft, and has behaved well through several washings (including line dry after tropical downpour). XL is slightly smaller than ideal for me, wish there was an XXL. Real proof is that I'm coming back for the other pattern.

    Flowers bloom across this 3/4-sleeve cotton shirt. Artisans in Denpasar, the capital of Bali and part of the Sundaland biogeographic region, use traditional batik techniques to create the soft outlines. They apply the design to cotton, using copper stamps and melted wax. When the fabric is dyed navy blue, the wax-impregnated areas remain white. The shirt is then washed and dried in the sun. The undyed areas are hand-colored, and hand-beaded accents are added.

    Textile artists have practiced the wax-resist dyeing method known as batik for more than 2,000 years. Although forms of batik can be found from Egypt to Malaysia, the batik work of the Indonesian archipelago is especially fine. In fact, in 2009 UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as one of the "Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity." With an ocean blue all-over leaf pattern, this handsome shirt showcases the skillful technique and visual boldness of Indonesian batik.

    Under the Balinese sun, artisans decorate lengths of fabric using a traditional batik technique developed in the coastal town of Lasem on the neighboring island of Java. Lasem is known for centuries of cross-cultural exchange and immigration with China, and bright red colors are typical of Lasem batik, as seen in this reversible jacket. Lightly quilted and fully finished with pockets and frog closures on both sides. Reverses to a rich aubergine (see online). Golden batik-dyed floral patterns grace both sides. Please accept slight variations due to the nature of the dyeing process.

    This flattering shirt is hand-dyed in Bali in the village of Padangsambian. Artisans use traditional batik methods to apply melted wax to fabric, using hand-carved stamps. When the fabric is dyed, the waxed areas resist the dye, and the pattern emerges when the wax is removed.

    The wax-resist dyeing technique of batik has a long history in Indonesia, where it evolved into high art over the past few centuries. Using a special tool that allows melted wax to flow as if through a fountain pen, artisans trace elaborate floral designs, curlicues, and dotted patterns onto fabric. When dyed, the wax-drawn designs remain vibrant. Similar patterns are hand-drawn here using metallic paints on aqua-blue 100% cotton, with hand-beaded details. 3/4-length sleeves.
