Brand Story

"Hello, I'm Veena, the founder and designer behind Grebr. My journey has been a colorful tapestry woven between the bustling streets of Mumbai, India, and the creative halls of Sir J.J. School of Applied Arts, where I completed my graduation. For over two decades, I immersed myself in the dynamic world of the animation industry, all the while nurturing my passion for the intricate art of Batik painting.

Now, as I embark on a new path as a designer cum businesswoman, I'm thrilled to present this collection, crafted with both excitement and pride. Each piece is a labor of love, a fusion of my artistic pursuits and a deep connection to the rich tapestry of Indian culture. It's more than a collection; it's a celebration of heritage and a testament to the vibrant spirit of creativity that drives Grebr."

  • Design Planning

    Plan your design on paper or directly on the fabric. Traditional batik often features repetitive geometric patterns or nature-inspired motifs.

  • Heating Wax

    Heat the wax to a liquid state. Be cautious as hot wax can cause burns.

  • Wax Application

    Use the tjanting tool or brushes to apply the wax to the areas you want to remain the original color. The wax creates a barrier, preventing the dye from penetrating those areas.

  • First Dye Bath

    • Prepare the dye bath according to the instructions on the dye packaging.
    • Immerse the fabric into the dye bath, allowing it to soak until the desired color is achieved.
    • Remove the fabric and let it dry completely.
  • Wax Removal

    • Carefully remove the wax. This can be done by ironing the fabric between layers of absorbent paper, which absorbs the melted wax.
    • Alternatively, you can gently scrape off the wax with a knife, revealing the wax-resisted areas.
  • Final product

    Painting is tweaked and printed on thick cloth and then turned into a beautiful bag.
