Recode is now streaming a live video conference called Batik Fat Quarters.
The company’s founder, Alex Lichtman, will be speaking about his latest creation: pink batik.
Recode has also published a live version of his talk on the company’s website.
The company’s Batik Fabric, a pink batkik fabric with a pink hue, is a new innovation in the design and manufacturing of batik, which Lichtmans father designed in a bid to combat the “pink menace” of pink.
Lichtman first noticed that pink batiks are increasingly being used for home decor and other fashion-oriented objects when his daughter, Emma, wore a pink hat while she went shopping.
The pink hat, he said, was a sign that pink was an accepted color for the clothing industry.
Lichtmann’s daughter, who is now 21, was thrilled when her friends suggested that she wear a pink bow tie, and that it was something that they could wear as a fashion statement.
“I knew it was possible to make a batik with pink fabric,” Lichtms daughter said in a recent interview.
As she began making batik at home, she found out that pink had a “really strong affinity with the skin” and was “perfect for the aesthetic of a pink dress.”
“I thought it was cool to try to incorporate that in my own home and I thought, ‘OK, let’s do this,'” Lichtmans daughter said.
Lothman bought a pink fabric company called Pink Fabric and began developing the batik after learning about their process.
The batik is made with recycled fabrics, and each fabric is made to order.
Lithmans daughter says she hopes the batiK will become “a fashion statement that everyone in the home can wear.”
Lichtmans daughter told Recode she hopes to be a fashion icon by being the first person to create a pink and pink-purple batik and to become the “face of pink.”
Recode also shared the Batik Factory, which is Lichtmaus daughters father’s personal manufacturing studio.
He told the interviewer that the factory was built with the same principles as his own factory in New York City.
Liters daughter, Olivia, also told the interview that the batika will be “inspired by the fabric, but it will be made from recycled material.”
“We will use organic fibers from the woods,” Lithman said.
Lithman says that he is a proponent of “organic” and sustainable manufacturing, and he has made the batikh using a “new type of fabric called a polyester,” a plastic that has been recycled.
Lachman told Recodes the batisk will be able to withstand temperatures as low as -15 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lichtmaums daughter, a sophomore at Penn State, said she wants to be able wear a “pinky bow tie” as she is going to college in the fall.
“I just want to be part of the conversation and have that conversation, and I want to wear it as a part of my outfit,” she said.
