Company: Jadi Batek
Founders: Mr. & Mrs. JC Yong
If art is the soul of mankind, then culture is the center of civilization. From hard won battles for Malaysia’s independence to the exploration of multiethnic traditions and values, our shared history has always been the thread of connection keeping us together as a society. In the midst of 21st century challenges, it’s easy to overlook the importance of preserving Malaysian culture and heritage, but sometimes, it’s only when we look back that we know how to move forward.
Founded in 1976, Jadi Batek has made it their mission to preserve, innovate and lead the evolution of batik arts, creating artistic masterpieces designed to enrich lives both locally and internationally. Built by power couple Mr. and Mrs. JC Yong and now passed on to their son, Colin Yong, Jadi Batek strives to be the epicenter of handmade batik arts, and to create a space for the craft in modern lifestyles.
Complete with their very own in-house batik artist team, Jadi Batek captures the very essence of traditional batik-making through painstakingly hand-making their crafts, all while innovating and staying ahead of modern fashion trends. Some of the handicrafts produced include facemasks, DIY Batik sets, silk scarves, pareo, and many more. Additionally, batik-making classes are also conducted for those interested in trying their hand at the art form.
