Batik block print
The 17oz denim of this Goro tote bag is manually woven on traditional looming machine. The illustrative pattern is hand printed following authentic batik technique. Using a copper stamp the artisan applies hot wax on the fabric to resist dye. After removing the hot wax by boiling in hot water, the pattern appears on the fabric’s surface. All metal hardware is created by hand using recycled metal from used bullets.
Natural Indigo Dye
To get a deep dark blue colour, the fabric is dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the fabric is dipped in the natural indigo, the darker the blue colour will get. During the dyeing process, no chemicals are added. General wear, use and wash will fade the colour and each product will gain its unique appearance by time.
