Fashion Revolution Week 2021
Batik - Thriving or Merely Surviving?
About the Webinar
Batik is an iconic part of our culture - but is its preservation mainly for tourists or our national pride?
It matters for us to know how, where, who makes the clothing we buy; in this session we discuss the environmental issues surrounding batik making in Malaysia and challenges faced by those working in the sector.
Will batik technique fade away with the accelerated pace of fashion seeing more of the market move into printing ?
This panel is held in collaboration with Think City Institute's Earth Week campaign
