Batik Pocket Scarf
21" x 21"
Batik, although an ancient craft in Java, is relatively new in Bali, stimulated by tourism and the rising demand of souvenirs. It is a manual wax-resistant dyeing technique where designs can be made by tracing an illustration or stamping a pattern in wax, dyeing the textile and then removing the wax. We loved designing sharp and precise graphics that are typically printed on paper or a poster, and watching them translate into something handmade. You can see the imperfections from the artist laying the wax or dyeing the colors, making each batik completely varied and original.
