Sally Weinberg of Textiil:

In 2009, UNESCO awarded Indonesia the Intangible Cultural Heritage status for their batik. I decided to visit central Java where there is a concentration of markets and makers. In Java I was able to experience a small sample of the incredibly diverse traditional hand made batik.  I feel lucky to have seen the crafting and use of these fabrics in their own countries — and to be able to apply them in a way that both showcases the fabric itself, and fits the way we live. It has been a delight to meet and work with local artisans and entrepreneurs.

Our unique products are the result of collaborations with Indonesian designers and artisans who are open to new ideas and partnerships as a way to increase awareness of, and to support the preservation of, their heritage crafts. We work together to offer new takes on traditional batiks, with the goal of expanding the audience for, and appreciation of, both the craft and the culture.

Our textiles are designed in Haverford, PA, and our goods are cut and sewn in Lancaster, PA. At home and abroad we work with individuals, small and medium enterprises, and when possible, with social enterprises and/or organizations incorporating sustainability initiatives.

 

Mission

 

In our travels and conversations we found businesses and organizations looking for ways to increase awareness of these heritage crafts. With them, we would like for these textiles to be seen, appreciated, and applied more broadly so that the craft itself will continue to grow and flourish. Our goal is to preserve the integrity of the original process and to apply new designs and palettes to functional, beautiful products suited to the way we live.
