Desak's story

Desak is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in batik robes. For this loan, she would like to invest in a bulk purchase of fabric and batik materials.

Desak has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is her story:

Desak learned how to make batik from Desak Putu Nithi. "When I worked with her, she taught me many things about textiles and hand-painting batik. The thing I like about her is her dedication to her work and her concern for the people working with her. I have built my career step by step. I started by asking my neighbors to come to my place to look at my collection and place orders if they like it. Now, there's so much to do I need the help of several assistants! I need some support to buy materials for my batik robes, and I want to send my gratitude in advance to all of you who help me through this loan."
