Creating Custom Batik Wear That Lasts

We tend to associate batik with formal or traditional wear, but it's undeniable that batik has been making a comeback, as more local brands put a new and modern spin on batik wear for all occasions. One of those brands is Batik by Nellie Pop and Jee, run by a mother and daughter duo, doing their bit to bring slow fashion back in style. We speak to Wong Ann Jee, one of the co-founders, to find out more about how their Peranakan heritage influences their work in creating custom and unique pieces for their customers.
