Natalie Martin

Designer Natalie Martin‘s search for unique fabrics brought her to Bali, where she was exposed to hand batik printed silk. Her collection of printed and embroidered caftans and dresses was born from the time honored Indonesian process of manual wax-resist dying. Designs on silk are painted with wax and then placed in a dye bath where everything, other than the waxed designs, are dyed. The wax is removed by boiling in water and the fabric is dried by the sun, making all of Natalie’s designs unique and distinctive. I’m crazy for the indigo prints but honestly, any of her lightweight and breezy pieces are just perfect for packing along on a holiday getaway!
