"The fabric utilized to make this backpack is known as batik, an originally Indonesian form of handmade wax dying that has been extremely prevalent in Sri Lanka throughout the last century, brought on by Dutch movements. Patterns such as this were often seen in Sari’s of women who picked tea in the northern estates and plantations. Seeing women dressed in an array of bright colors in juxtaposition to green valley’s and exceptionally blue sky inspired me to bring this fabric back and share the awe." —Sagheer Khan

There is something that happens when you visit a new place with a new culture…you begin to Sri’alize just how small we are in this big beautiful world and just how much we have to learn!
