Sonali Dharmawardena, the artist behind these beautiful creations, has worked with many creative mediums from pottery, jewellery, fine arts in oils, water colour and pencil. But with her discovery of the heritage art of Batik, her life took on a whole new journey, as her love of fashion and art converged. Batik, one of the oldest methods of value addition to fabric in the yesteryear, became the happy medium for her to express and share her unique sense of style and design.
Sonali has taken one of the oldest Sri Lankan Artisan Crafts and put her own individual stamp on it. Experimenting with new technologies and innovations, she delights in adding more value and texture to the fabric created using traditional Batik methodology.
Every piece that you see in our gallery is a hand crafted, individual work of art. No two pieces are the same. Even if you were to request a bespoke design similar to one on the site, what we design for you, though similar in colour and motif, will be unique, giving you the pleasure of wearing an unique garment of art.
