How cute are these?! We made a really small batch and the size 6 is already sold out. Fear not, we’ll make more! For now, you can order size 2 or 4. More details below.
Rainbow kids’ batik t-shirt
These adorable, gender-neutral, color-popping shirts are totally awesome! Hand painted in small batches, every shirt is a little bit different. The rainbow on the front features the three primary colors, and the back is our semi-solid hand dyed deep purple.
These batik kids’ shirts are made using the same professional fiber-reactive dyes we use for all of our garments. You can expect machine washable, dryer safe, fade-proof results for years to come!
How we batik:
Every single thing is made by hand in our process except the actual clothing blank (which we source from local/sustainable manufacturers). We sew in our own tags, scour the garment (hot wash to prep it), soak it in the natural soda ash solution, wring them out, create intricate hand-painted designs individually by hand.
Using a blend of local beeswax and paraffin waxes that we mix in-house, we melt the wax and apply it in several layers to the fabric depending on the design, dyeing areas separately in each layer.
Finally the shirts are boiled (to remove wax), then washed and dried again! It’s very thorough and traditional, and totally worth it. Here’s to wearing slow fashion!
