Bernarda Antony is on a journey to share the legends, motifs and meaning behind Indonesian batik. An alumnus of La Salle International College in Jakarta and Sugino Fashion College in Tokyo, Bernarda blends traditional technique and story-telling with fashion through The Batik Library. The Batik Library connects consumers with one-of-a-kind, naturally-dyed pieces that celebrates the details of the regions they represent and supports artisans with generational lineage to the tradition of batik making.
