About Sol Maleu
Sol Maleu is an eco friendly wearable art studio that specializes in original, handmade batik clothing for women. Batik is an ancient Javanese art of textile design, where all the elements are drawn with wax resist and dyed to achieve rich colors and intricate patterns. Sol Maleu designs are an unconventional fusion of the ancient traditional batik motifs and a modern vision of feminine beauty. As a woman myself I love and admire the feminine capacity to be many things at once and to transform our inner and outer selves under any circumstances. All the pieces in the collection are a reflection of this multifaceted beauty. At the same time, each one aims to bring out the unique essence of every woman: the romantic, the girl, the goddess, the flirt, the temptress. Flowing silhouettes, sensually soft silk, eye catching patterns and a delightful color pallet all highlight the enchanting power, radiance and depth of every woman’s beauty.
The collection includes day and special occasion dresses, tunics, tops, skirts and scarves. All pieces are 100% silk. Every item is versatile and offers a woman the playful freedom to invent her own distinct look. There is a special joy in owning a garment that can be dressed up or down, depending on personal style, mood and occasion.
Sol Maleu is committed to producing handmade batik designs in an environmentally friendly way. I only use environmentally safe dyes, natural wax resists, and save energy by fixing her dyes using natural sun light. I use the highest quality silk, crafting durable, original clothing that is meant to be enjoyed for years.
