Batik Paintings

Batik is done by first applying wax to the cloth where one doesn’t want the dye to penetrate.  Secondly, the cloth is placed into a vat of dye and thirdly, put into very hot water to remove the wax.  These 3 steps are repeated for as many times as there are colours, always working from light to darker colours.  The Javanese are the undisputed masters of batik ...but do also take a look at the Tanzanian batiks. 

All of our batik paintings are available for purchase directly online.  There are hundreds of paintings here...check it out!
