Nature inspires every pattern in our Kikay Silk Robe collection. Hand drawn and painted with with the traditional batik technique (using hot wax and non-toxic dyes), the quality of color and sharpness are affected by the sunlight, water, and temperature on the days the robe was made. Every robe requires a team of artisans to complete one robe within 5 to 7 days. Truly a work of love!
Batik-making is so tied to Indonesian culture that it was designated a UNESCO Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2009.

Note: We hand painted the 100% silk with joy using dyes that are not toxic to the environment. Because the color is mixed by hand, colors may vary by 10-25%. We cannot guarantee that the color will be exactly the same as the photo but will be very similar. Any inconsistencies is an indication of the raw beauty of handmade coloring, not a flaw.
Who makes our pajamas
Made with joy in Bali in a family-environment workshop proudly owned and managed by Ratna, an empowered Balinese woman, who was 22 years old when she started the business. They are crafted in small quantities by a small community of long-tenured local artisans who enjoy fair wages, and safe, clean and respectful working conditions.
Our silk robe is dedicated to Kikay, the loving mother of Love Stories Bali founder. Mom Kikay was an empowered self-taught woman entrepreneur who, like silk, was strong yet smooth. While the inherent beauty of silk enhances a moment, the inner beauty of Mom Kikay enhanced the lives of many underprivileged villagers. This one's for you Mom!
