Buddhi Batiks is an ethical fashion business, where the batik craft is practiced by women, some of whom have been with the workshop since the company’s inception in 1970. The batik workshop, located in the village of Koswadiya on the north-west coast of Sri Lanka, in turn plays an integral role in the economy of the village. The workshop makes a concerted effort to hire from and around the village. This enables the artisans, women with families to look after, to remain close to home. Each piece that is produced at Buddhi Batiks is hand-painted in wax by these talented artisans, and hand-dyed by experienced dye masters in a seemingly unlimited variety of colours, ranging from the most vibrant of hues to the subtlest, softest pastels and creams.
