Diego ( Owner of Nusa and Debali ) opine that Indonesian Batik is an exquisite and unique way of seeing and representing the universe around us. Pioneer Batik artists and artisans were able to intuit life’s intrinsic repetition of different patterns. Patterns that mix and combine creating different shapes and effects. We look at a Batik design from a distance and we see something. We look at it from close and we discover something else. Same as the universe, same as life. And Batik does it in a poetic and aesthetically pleasant and harmonious way.
Nusa and Debali rediscover Traditional Indonesian Batik incorporating it to our surf life. The result is a clothing line for men and a clothing line for women that are classic yet bold, elegant yet fresh, traditional yet modern, casual yet stylish.
