Batik Block Printing

The ancient art of Indian block printing includes distinctive regional styles. In all cases it is a labor–intensive, exacting craft. Teak wood blocks are hand carved with a variety of motifs and there is a wooden handle for the artisan to hold while stamping the cloth. The design can be dipped in dye and stamped directly. However, for Batik block printing the design is stamped with a wax resist which will block the dye when the fabric is dipped in dye. Multiple stampings and dyeing can produce complex patterns and colors. The wax is removed by melting it in very hot water, and the melted wax can be reused. Skilled artisans can combine different techniques to create uniquely beautiful fabrics.

I love this jacket/dress as it is beautifully made and fits me perfectly. I am 5'9", 130lb and ordered a medium. The colors are unusual and the soutache embroidery on the front is a nice touch. I wore it as a dress and received many compliments.

Terra cotta 'duster' jacket
Apr 3, 2023  |  By Joan Olson
This jacket is lovely....prettier than the photo. The front placket is lightly embroidered. Love the big pockets. I'm a size 8 and got the small. It fits perfect, true to size. I'll wear it just like the catalog shows. I also got the terra cotta striped wide-legged pants to go with it.
