According to Wikipedia, batik fabrics, like the ones used to make these Madras Batik Walk Shorts from Industry of All Nations, have “notable meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe,” and their colors “represent the three major Hindu Gods (Brahmā, Vishnu, and Śiva).” And here I was thinking they just looked cool. Organic cotton madras. Eco-friendly dyes. Responsibly made in India. And only $65 a pop.
