Batiks from floor to ceiling at Indige.

Indige Design in Kaimuki is hosting a show of batiks by Hartono today through Saturday only. This is a unique opportunity to see his work, which is currently being shown at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.

Ron Irwin, owner of Indige, said he can arrange for customers to have a custom outfit (in limited styles) made out of any of the batik cotton sarongs they select. Since each batik is 2 1/2 meters long, there is enough fabric to make a long dress or perhaps even a tunic and pants.

Prices for these batiks range from $75 - $125

A wide variety of colors and designs.

Hartono is among the new generation of Javanese batik artists. He comes from Solo, central Java, which has been a center for batik-making for more than 150 years. He blends Javanese, Japanese and European motifs into his batik designs.

Hartono will be available to answer questions at Indige Design.

When you visit Indige, be sure to check out – and perhaps try on – some of Ron’s new summer blouses, perfect for our climate and lifestyle. Love those easy, breezy natural fibers!

Indige is located at 3449 Waialae Avenue. It is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. For more information: 734-3377.

Congratulations Hartono and we hope your exhibition is a great success. If the response to your work is like that recently at the Noosa Regional Gallery in Queensland, Australia, you will have many new collectors wanting your work. Good for Indige Design for recognising the quality of your work.
