I have always wanted to work in collaboration with brands and designers to invigorate the ancient art of batik with more contemporary, fresh silhouettes and styles. It keeps my job interesting and exciting, and has created some stunning products.
I have been working in collaboration with Net-a-porter for 5 seasons producing a couple of exclusive pieces alongside the collections. We are now featured in the NET SUSTAIN edit which is a platform curated to help support a more sustainable future of consciously crafted products. We feature in the Considered Process section which celebrates brands which support the health of the environment, worker and wearer. We are also named in the Locally Made section investing in the local economy and environment. For my brand this is keeping the ancient art of Batik printing alive in Bali with hand printed silk.
I love stocking my collection in Harrods and have collaborated with them to produce some exciting exclusives. These were featured in their curated summer space last season as well as being part of the wider collection.
Inspired by lifelong friendship and a mutual love for Bali. These collaborative pieces are a reflection of my best sellers and prints combined with the By Rory signature print.
