Join us in person at the museum for a special opportunity to meet the founders of Brahma Tirta Sari Studio, two artisans currently featured in the museum’s Artisans Gallery. Enjoy a day of shopping and informal discussion about the art of batik and Indonesian textile traditions. The artisans will bring one-of-a-kind batiks exclusive to this trunk show for purchase. For one day only, enjoy 20% off their cotton and silk batik merchandise.
Brahma Tirta Sari Studio has been producing textiles in their batik studio in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, since 1985. They draw on the traditions of their Indonesian ancestors — batik makers in the court city of Solo in Java — to explore the richness of historical batiks as contemporary art.
