In the chaos of lockdowns and restrictions, we’ve somehow found ourselves halfway through 2021 with Father’s Day just around the corner. Buying a gift for men can be tricky, even when not in lockdown. So this year, why not give dad a gift that’s just as unique as he is with these artisan-made batik apparels and accessories.
Batik is a local art form that celebrates hand-made. At Batik Boutique, every fabric is hand-printed and hand-dyed by artisans across the nation; and the hand-crafted nature of batik making means that no two pieces are exactly the same. Every dad is unique just like batik.
Go the extra mile by personalising gifts with embroidered initials, handwritten notes and gift-wrapping; all you have to do is add a delivery note at checkout and they will do the rest. Here are eight gifts that for your dad this Father’s Day.
1. Classic Batik Shirt, RM259 – RM289
Whether you’re after bold batik or a polished print, Batik Boutique’s range of men’s batik shirts has a fitting fabric for every type of dad.
Designed to help you beat the heat, their breathable straight-fit batik shirts are made of 100% cotton. For dads that prefer a looser fit, you can simply unstitch the darts on the back of the shirts or drop the team a note at checkout.
Batik Boutique’s collection of short and long-sleeved shirts include over 20 prints for you to choose from.
2. Cuban Batik Shirt, RM259
A new addition to the Batik Boutique’s collection of menswear, the Cuban shirt incorporates the traditional art of batik with a modern, contemporary cut.
The Cuban shirt, also known as the guayabera, features a lapel-like collar, short sleeves, and a loose, straight fit. Lightweight and made of 100% lawn cotton, this open collar style is the perfect fit for the young dad and the dad young at heart!
Pick from three pastel prints to transport dad from lockdown at home to the sunny Caribbean.
3. Batik Boxer Shorts & Shave Gift Set, RM248
Give dad the gift of comfort and clean shaves with Batik Boutique’s Boxer and Shave set.
Each gift set includes 100% cotton batik boxers, a metal shave brush and shaving cream made in Italy all packaged in a handsome gift box. This gift set is the perfect lockdown gift for the dad who loves to stay groomed while lounging at home.
4. Batik Necktie and Pocket Square Set, RM179
The batik tie and pocket square set is an ode to tradition and lovely addition of colour to any suit or smart blazer.
