Redefining Sustainable Fashion with Batik

In recent years, the fashion industry has witnessed a significant shift towards inclusivity and sustainable fashion, with the rise of genderless fashion trends leading the charge. This movement towards inclusivity and versatility goes hand in hand with a growing demand for sustainability and ethical production practices. This trend is not merely about breaking down gender barriers; it's about embracing quality traits that resonate with today's socially conscious consumers.

Unlike traditional buyers who follow seasonal fashion calendars, a significant portion of consumers now rely on fast fashion's rapid supply chains. This shift has disrupted the dominance of fashion retailers tied to bi-annual seasons and paved the way for many small-scale retailers to enter the market. 

Consumers today crave variety with each purchase and expect more versatility from their clothing, unlike fast fashion, which prioritises mass production and rapid turnover, sustainable fashion emphasises durability and timeless design. This is what Mark Baigent is about. Investing in high-quality materials ensures that our garments withstand the test of time. Reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing environmental impact.

In pursuing sustainable fashion, Mark Baigent has seamlessly blended contemporary fashion with traditional techniques, infusing pieces from our latest collection, “ANNEX”, with the timeless art of Batik. Originating from Indonesia, batik involves the meticulous application of wax and dye to fabric, resulting in intricate patterns and designs. This ancient art form produces stunning visuals and embodies principles of sustainability and quality by focusing on singular and unique outcomes as opposed to mass duplicates. Mark Baigent's commitment to sustainability is evident in pieces like the Eyola Tank Batik and the Albatross Dress Sheer Long Batik, where the essence of Batik intertwines with unisex fashion trends.

Our Albatross Dress, an avant-garde masterpiece in dark fashion, represents this fusion of sustainable fashion. Crafted with gender-neutral elegance, this dress showcases a vibrant yellow Batik print reminiscent of wooden diamonds. Guaranteeing that every dress becomes a unique wearable artwork. 

At the same time, the Eyola Tank Top featured in our latest “ANNEX” collection, embodies simplicity and quality. Made from soft and breathable fabric, this unisex tank top boasts a spot-dyed pattern achieved through careful handmade batik dyeing. With thoughtful design elements like a tight Mao collar and an asymmetric hem, the Eyola Tank Top merges style with sustainability, offering luxurious comfort and a commitment to sustainable fashion.

Each piece embraces the individuality of handmade prints and unleashes your avant-garde spirit. As a result, each piece can become a part of your style, a way you show your support for sustainability and ethical values. Don't miss out on exploring our collection that not only speaks to your values but also expresses your unique identity.
