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. 

The New York Times wrote that "the best-performing designs were a mask constructed of two layers of high-quality, heavyweight “quilter’s cotton,” a 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," stated The New York Times.

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 three layers batik wax & dye fabric, nose wire, adjustable ear strap and pocket for filter. Take a look at our selections below.

Love these masks!

These are the most adjustable and best coverage masks I have found. I like the option these masks have of adding a filter with the pocket. I have purchased several for myself and a few for gifts, as I know they are adjustable. The fabric and colors are beautiful. I’m wearing the Kasihcoop mask with a filter while visiting outdoors with my granddaughter.

Nice mask but colors appear different than how shown online

Fits well, and I like the adjustable ear loops. However, I ordered the red mask which turned out to have a great deal of orange in it. Also, I ordered the black and pink but it turned out to be black and burgundy.

Love this mask!

Great fabric, great design and very comfortable

Excellent quality and beautiful design

The material is very soft, breathable and comfortable. Love the design too. One of my favorite masks so far!
