Suwitra's story

Suwitra, from Bali, specializes in traditional batik and hand-painted apparel. He would like to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of fabric to expand production.

Suwitra has been selling through NOVICA since 2007. This is his story:

Suwitra designs and creates elegant wearable art through his unique ability to capture nature's beauty in clothing apparel. He masters batik and silk screening techniques as well as hand-painted motifs, which he transforms into colorful sarongs, scarves and stylish clothing.

"I am glad to have the possibility to receive this microcredit. I'll be able to buy the materials I need to build up my stock. Thanks to your support, I have an opportunity to develop my business. I hope this will also lead to more people that will really like my designs. Thank you so very much."
