One Of A Kind, Hand Dyed, Batik Clothing

Batik is an ancient art form of creating designs on fabric with wax and dyes. Melted wax is applied to cloth before being dipped in dye. Wherever the wax has seeped through the fabric, the dye will not penetrate. Sometimes several colors are used, with a series of dyeing, drying and waxing steps. Thin wax lines are made with a tjanting needle, a wooden handled tool that has a metal cup with a tiny spout, out of which the wax seeps. After the last dyeing, the fabric is boiled to dissolve the wax and reveal the deep rich colors and the fine crinkle lines that give batik its character. NO TWO ARE EVER THE SAME!

All of our batiks are waxed and hand dyed right in our home in
Hyde Park, Vermont. Each piece has been boiled, washed several times, and dried in a hot dryer, so they should not bleed or shrink. We recommend washing with like colors and line drying to keep the colors bright.

Each batik is an unique piece of
wearable art
guaranteed to satisfy
your inner wolf.
