Batik is a versatile, strong and cool fabric that can have many uses for clothing, accessorizing, head scarf, baby sling, interiors etc....and has a very refreshing and eclectic appeal.

All batiks are Holland wax (unless otherwise stated), which are considered to be the best quality. Using the traditional batik process of decorating cloth by covering a part of it with a coat of wax and then dyeing the cloth. The waxed areas keep their original color and when the wax is removed the contrast between the dyed and undyed areas gives the pattern. Other batiks produced by simpler mass printing methods are of a lesser quality and cannot genuinely be called batik. All batiks retain the tradition and patterns of Africa.
