About Us

Our Philosophy

Life, we think, should be chock full of adventures, nifty coincidences, accidental conversations, and daily discoveries.  Not getting enough?  Try our Fairly Traded, adventure ready bags,clothes and charmed objects. Then…venture forth with good karma on your body.

Unique Batik is a Fair Trade wholesaler and online retailer based in Raleigh, NC.  In business since1991, Unique Batik now partners with artisans (individuals, families, and co-ops) in Guatemala, Ghana, Thailand, and Chile.  A proud member of the Fair Trade Federation, Unique Batik guarantees its artisans fair wages, long-term relationships, and safe working conditions that are free from discrimination and forced child labor.  This allows the artists to make a living, stay in their home communities and carry on cultural traditions.
