Bello, raffinato, ben fatto! Alla prima spedizione il batik appariva macchiato. Nel giro di qualche giorno me lo ha rispedito ex novo. Ancora grazie!

About

Freestyle Batik Artist

So nice to see you here!
My name is Victoria and I am the artist who designs these batiks. If you have a basic understanding of the process, then you may appreciate the uniqueness of this clothing. To those who are not yet familiar, batik is a way of designing fabric by applying molten wax, which then acts as a "resist" on the fabric as it is carefully dyed. This can be done in layers as each dye submersion creates a new color. With my technique, each piece is individually hand painted with 100% pure beeswax. The colors are mixed and measured in the daytime hours so that I can interpret the color process under natural light. The beeswax is eventually cleaned off with boiling water. Once the boil-out process is complete, the batiks are machined washed and dried. ensuring they are very durable for long time ahead.

Curious about my batik supplies?

~ my beeswax comes from a local candle making supply shop, and also from various apiaries and wholesale outlets. It's a never-ending hunt.
~ My Procion dyes are purchased from Dharma Trading Company, based in San Rafael, CA. Check out their website for batik supplies.
~ The yoga pants and leggings come from American Apparel and/or Royal Apparel before I apply the batik.
~ All the organic cotton dresses and tops are sewn by me. I'm sorry I can not take custom orders for these items at this time. However I am open to receiving suggestions for ideas about styles and sizes.
~ The organic fabric comes from a local distributer in my town, called Sew Organics.
~ The organic cotton t-shirts come from American Apparel, and the organic cotton hoodies come from Royal Apparel.

So glad to see you here! Welcome to my world of artistic batik. If you have a basic understanding of the process then you can appreciate what's going on here. To those who are not yet familiar, batik is a way of creating designs on fabric by applying molten wax, which then acts as a "resist" on the fabric as it is carefully dyed. This can be done in layers as each dye submersion creates a new color combination. With my particular technique, each piece is individually hand painted with 100% pure beeswax. I carefully hand dye the batiks with high quality Procion dyes in small batches. The colors are mixed and measured only during daylight hours so that I can interpret the color process under natural light. In the end, the beeswax resist is cleaned out of the batiks with boiling water. Each batch requires filling, stirring, monitoring, and emptying of water and batiks. Rain or shine, hot weather or freezing temperatures, this part of the process is always done outside.


You can watch me in motion on my youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/batikwalla

Once the boil-out process is complete, the batiks are machined washed, usually 3 times - once before and twice after boiling - then dried nice and warm in a dryer.

As a result, all Batikwalla clothing is machine wash & dry friendly. Hand washing is not recommended or necessary.

Keep it simple! This will retain its shape, design and color for a very long time.
