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 not only bought this dress but have been a customer for ten years or so. Dozens of dresses and tunics and not ever disappointed! Love the company and the products and will continue to purchase their lovely clothes.

Love the dress
Nov 24, 2023  |  By Justine Toms
This is a soft, jersey dress that flows over my body. The colors are rich, more of a dark teal than blue ...I wear a scarf around the neck and black tights. I also wear boots to complete the look . .. I love it . .. The hand-stitching in the bodice makes it truly unique.
