Parang Kencana is synonymous with high quality batik, the elegant art of wax-resist cloth dye that Indonesia is famous for. Founded over two decades ago by Mariana Sutandi, each piece of Parang Kencana batik is still created using traditional techniques by skilled artisans in our workshops, even as the brand has evolved to offer a range of modern as well as classic choices covering fashion and home living accessories.
Today, Parang Kencana is a recognized leader in luxury batik apparel and Indonesian accessories. In the process, we set ourselves high standards not only in the quality and design of our products and shops, but also in terms of good employment practices with safe and healthy working conditions for all our employees. Driven by a commitment to our heritage and the artisans of Indonesia, we thus continue to innovate and explore while remaining true to the art of batik, continuously reimagining batik for a modern age.
