Batik neckwear in the Sydney Collection is individually crafted in my studio from 100% silk crepe vintage kimono fabric.
It´s about versatility - you can wear it like a shirt collar under your T-shirt, or as a scarf, a bow, a tie or a belt... Works equally well as a piece of textile jewellery.
Overall length: 196cm. Width: 3,5cm. Length of collar: 41cm.
Wearing suggestions: A combination of firm internal lining and a magnet fastener (see previous picture) ensures the collar stays upright. No crease, super easy to wear.
Travel and storage: Each neckwear is packed in a handmade linen pouch.
Care: Gentle hand wash in cold water, warm iron only for crepe silk items.
"I came across this fabulous 1960s and 70s silk fabric which was sold in a roll as an unused piece, enough for 1-2 neckwear pieces. It reminds me of Javanese batik that I have studied for a long time ago in Yogyakarta."
