Embracing Equity and Inclusivity with Batik Boutique

International Women's Day (IWD) 2023 theme is #EmbraceEquity. This theme encourages individuals and organizations to embrace diversity, promote inclusivity, and advocate for gender equity. Batik Boutique's mission resonates closely with this theme, as we are dedicated to empowering women and artisans from marginalized communities, and promoting equality for all.

"We believe that every woman has the potential to create positive change in her life and in her community," said Batik Boutique founder and CEO, Amy Blair. "Our mission is to provide women with the training, resources, and opportunities they need to succeed and thrive."

By providing training and employment opportunities for women from marginalized communities, we are on track to create a more equal society. Our commitment to sustainability also reflects a desire to create a more equitable future, where all individuals, regardless of who they are, have access to the resources they need to thrive.

We apply sustainable practices wherever possible such as the use of eco-friendly materials (natural dye using mangosteen leaves) and processes using remnant batik fabrics to reduce waste.

Through our partnerships with other women-led businesses and organizations, Batik Boutique promotes a network of support and collaboration. This approach recognizes that creating lasting change requires a collective effort and that by working together, we can achieve greater impact.
