We are a business with purpose. Our batik are handmade with love in Malaysia. Cotton & Sago began it's journey in 2014, focuses on revitalising the art of hand-blocked batik, a valuable craft that is vanishing fast as artisans are forgoing the art for menial jobs. In preserving the craft, we seek to bridge makers and markets. But more than that, we seek to connect people to people. We make efforts towards creating a more sustainable income for our artisans, as well as a more humane and transparent way of working.
