batikTEKTURA is a design company specialising in contemporary batik, designed and made entirely in Malaysia.
We design batik pieces for the non-conventional individuals. Our designs are anchored on architectural ideas, concepts or elements, hence breathing modernity into the art of batik.
Our designs are experimental.
The quirkier, the better. The more interesting, the better. We love trying out new ideas and mixing up colours and techniques as we go along. Some of our designs may look easy to produce, but in actual fact, are ridiculously hard and time consuming. No other batik makers would attempt something like this.
But we do it for the love of batik art.
To highlight the beauty of our fabrics, we chose simple and timeless silhouttes in our clothing design. All our clothing and accessories are comfortabled, meticulously-made and suitable for both casual and formal events.
batikTEKTURA is co-founded by 2 Malaysian women, Azrina Lasa and Yez Yusof.
Azrina is a former banking practitioner with a BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance from De Montfort University, UK and currently pursuing an MBA from Taylor's University. She has worked in several banks and audit firms in Malaysia and the UK. Yez Yusof is a professional architect with qualifications from the University of Portsmouth, UK and Malaysia. Both have known each other since their secondary schooling years and later reconnected to experiment their ideas, which subsequently led to the formation of batikTEKTURA in 2018. Yez is the design maestro behind all of batikTEKTURA's fabric creations, which reflects her architectural experiences and influences, while Azrina conducts the end-product design, marketing and promotion, and general management of the company.
batikTEKTURA also works with small batik makers in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, to produce its batik fabrics. In this way, the company is able to help the small communities in Kuala Terengganu to continuously make a living and preserve the art of handmade batik.
