Traditionally waxed on 100% cotton with a bronze Sarawakian Tjanting before the trees are hand painted, then the entire piece hand dyed.
After drying, all my batiks are set with textile fixer, then double boiled and ironed to ensure color steadfastness and long-term durability.
Each piece of Hand Made One Of A Kind Batik Art takes anywhere from 6 hours to 3 days of work.
This particular piece measures approximately 91" x 45" (232 x 114 cm). Larger than the average sarong or pareo size as it was originally intended to be a men`s shirt, but after painting, looked so good on the beach! Perfect for a hot summer`s day around the neck or bust or a simple wrap skirt you can tie yourself!. Else convo me to custom order it as a piece of cloth without the hem that you can have tailored to create your own fabulous Batik dress! (To have it sewn as a long dress, you would need at least 4 meters, or be very petite!
More durable than silk, take it with you as a blanket on a plane or to the beach to cover up with glamour and gorgeousness after coming out of the water!
