THE STORY BEHIND THE PRINT
Batiking is a process of bunching material or using wax to to isolate areas of a fabric for dyeing. Batiking has been done by indigenous cultures throughout the world and the different pigments used in the dyeing process, particularly indigo, are said to have spiritual and medicinal properties. This textile is a print of a traditional batik pattern. It arrives stiff, but becomes very soft with the first wash or couple of wears.
