True Hand Dyed Batik from Ghana Africa. Being a real hand dyed piece don't be surprised to find little flecks of wax still clinging to the fabric. This piece is in nice deep dark military green tones, teal blue and black.
My sister in law was just in Ghana and I had a family member purchase some fabrics for her to bring back to me. So I have some nice new Batiks hand dyed from Ghana. African Batik’s & Wax Prints --Wax Painted Fabrics from Africa.
Batik (Wax Painting) is a technique that has been practiced in many parts of the world for centuries. The basic method is the resist dye technique. Melted wax is applied to the fabric to form a pattern. The fabric is then dyed either by hand or in a dye bath. This same process is repeated over and over applying wax and dying until the final pattern or picture is complete. Eventually the fabric is placed between sheets of paper and ironed to remove the wax.
