WearableArtByHeather's Shop Announcement

Howzit! (That's how we greet people in Zimbabwe.)

I am a textile designer and Batik artist from Zimbabwe, currently living in New Hampshire.

From a watercolor effect to shibori to batik, the media and techniques that I work in varies greatly. All the colors are mixed by me and my designs are applied free-hand and without stenciling. The end result is that each scarf is a unique and one of a kind piece of wearable art.

The Batik method is the application of melted wax, which resists dye, resulting in the white design on some of the pieces. The wax is then carefully removed with heat. Any minor imperfections are part of all the handcrafted processes, which indicates the authenticity of each garment.
