Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
A hand dyed batik cotton fabric in bold navy and white. Fabric measures 22" wide by 18" long. The snail motif is approximately 4" square.
Caracol is the spanish name for snail. This motif reminds me of the wonderful carved patterns I saw while touring the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.
To create this piece, I apply melted wax in a snail pattern and then immerse the fabric in a navy blue dyebath. I boil the fabric to remove the wax and any excess dye. My final wash is a handwash in lavender hemp soap, to soften the fabric.
All of my fabrics are colorfast and preshrunk.
