Batik Postcard 01

Batik Postcard 01


Sixteen black and white postcard batik produced in Tanzania.  Batiks are made by brushing hot liquid wax onto a piece of cotton cloth in a desired pattern. The cloth is then dipped into a dye which adheres to all the areas that are not covered by the wax. The wax is then removed and reapplied repeatedly for each color used. This is a tedious time consuming endeavor that yields exceptional art. 

Dimensions: Approximately 26" L x 20" W
