Kiah Kurung Kedah Top Bintang Kenanga Cotton Poplin in Neutral Grey (Daun Mempelam)
Batik Rahsia Alam
It has been a great deal of interest for us to circumvent the environmental problems associated with manufactured colouring agents by using natural dyes. After undergoing many studies, research and experiments in our Nysakapas Batik Studio, we have developed our way of making Natural Dyed Batiks or also known as “Batik Rahsia Alam”, a new creation promising new skills and other sustainable systems that will help to nourish a greener textile dyeing process from potential plant resources used for natural dyeing and natural beeswax as a main component in our wax during Handblocking process.
Daun Mempelam / Mango Leaves Dye Extract
Making dyes extracted from Mango leaves is sustainable and safe. Green leaves were plucked, crushed and boiled for hours before dyeing process. Mordants are used as a binding agent to help natural dyes adhere to fibres which creates vibrancy and colour-fastness.
Kenanga or Cananga odorata, known as the Cananga tree, is a tropical tree that is valued for the perfume extracted from its flowers, called Ylang-ylang. Ylang-Ylang which means "wilderness" in Tagalog,a drooping, long-stalked flower with six narrow petals, rather like a sea star in appearance.
For our Kenanga Bintang, only the "sea star" motif is included in the batik
