Scarf- silk batik hand painted by Malaysian artisans

Size Guide

Overview

Batik is an ancient art that has been practiced for 2,000 years in Southeast Asia. This complex dyeing process creates beautiful, intricate designs that are unique to the region they come from and tell a story. 

Lovingly made

Our hand painted silk scarves and sarongs are designed by Phemke and made by artisans at Batik Boutique. This award-winning social enterprise was created to disrupt the cycle of poverty in Malaysia by training women from low-income backgrounds to produce gifts and fashion accessories.  These ladies become stake holders in the business and have a more equitable share of fruits of their labour.

2. Swimwear

Our swimsuits are manufactured in Brazil, the country famous for its beautiful bikinis and one pieces. The sizes run slightly smaller than what you would expect in for example Europe or the US, so in doubt it is recommended you choose the bigger size. Unfortunately we cannot exchange swimsuits under any circumstances due to hygienic reasons. If you would like to try on our swimsuits, please send us a message to hello@phemke.com. 

3. Dresses

Our dresses run true to their size and the exact dimensions can be found in the product description in our Shop.
