THE BATIK BOUTIQUE HAND BLOCKED
OUR STORY The Batik Boutique is a social enterprise created to disrupt the cycle of poverty by providing skills training and jobs to artisans and seamstresses in Malaysia. While we take enormous pride in the high quality hand-made fashion, gifts and home goods that our artisans create, at the Batik Boutique, people matter most. •Our products start with family-run businesses in rural Malaysia where batik textiles are created by hand. We deliver this fabric to women who sew in their homes or in our sewing training center. •Each purchase directly benefits the artisan who made it. •A portion of our profits is invested back into the communities we work with to provide health care, financial literacy and continuing education. Today, more than 50 artisans work with The Batik Boutique to gain a fair, sustainable income and marketable skills. In 2015 we established a sewing center in a low-community housing area to make working more convenient for women by eliminating needs for transportation and by providing childcare.
