The port city of Lasem, Indonesia, has been called Little Beijing because of its centuries of cultural exchange with China. The influence is seen in Lasem batik, which often incorporates Chinese symbols like dragons and lotus flowers. This lightly quilted jacket is hand-dyed in Lasem and reverses from lime green to aqua. Fully finished with pockets and mother-of-pearl buttons on both sides.


Made in Indonesia. 100% rayon. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Machine wash.


The wax-resist dyeing technique of batik has been found from Egypt to Mali and from India to Malaysia, as early as 2,000 years ago. The most exquisite batik comes from Indonesia, where the technique has evolved into high art over the past few centuries.


The most traditional form of batik begins with a needle-like object called a canting, through which melted wax flows as the artists uses it to draw a design or pattern on fabric. When the fabric is placed in a dye vat, the color will not permeate the areas that have been permeated with wax. For more complex patterns, this wax and dye process can be repeated with any number of dye colors. After the final dip into the dye vat, the fabric is hung to dry and the wax is dissolved in a solvent or melted away with a hot iron, revealing the previous layers of protected fabric as well as the crackling lines that are the hallmark of batik.


In the 20th century, Javanese batik artists developed a process by which batik could be executed more quickly, but still by hand. Now, a copper block is often used to transfer wax in a predetermined pattern over a larger area. While still most frequently found on fabric, batik can be done on paper, wood, or even ceramic.

Comments about Reversible Indonesian Batik Jacket:

I absolutely love this jacket!! I am an XL size & often have bought XL from NG that didn't fit. This is a true XL size w/ room to spare. Comfort is super as the fabric is delicately delicious! Colors true to photo. Durable jacket.

    Comments about Reversible Indonesian Batik Jacket:

    The jacket does run a little big. In my case that is just fine. In the picture it appear to me to be more quilted than it actually was.
