Collection: Why is Batik Recommended as One of The Best Materials for Face Masks?

Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth. This technique originated from Java, Indonesia. Batik word was derived from Javanese words "Amba" and "Nitik" which mean to write and dot. 

"Tests performed at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., showed good results for homemade masks using quilting fabric. Dr. Segal, of Wake Forest Baptist Health, who led the study, noted that quilters tend to use high-quality, high-thread count cotton. 

The best-performing designs were a mask constructed of two layers of high-quality, heavyweight “quilter’s cotton,” a two-layer mask made with thick batik fabric, and a double-layer mask with an inner layer of flannel and outer layer of cotton.

Bonnie Browning, executive show director for the American Quilter’s Society, said that quilters prefer tightly woven cottons and batik fabrics that stand up over time. "

Batik is made of tightly woven cloth which is why it performs as one of the best material for a face mask.

At Kasih Co-op, our latest collection Gili & Lombok face masks feature nose wire, adjustable ear strap and pocket for filter. Take a look at our selections below.
