What is Batik?
Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Batik is made by printing the wax design onto fabric using a copper stamp called a cap. The applied wax design resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired. Due to the artisan nature of this process every Batik printed item differs slightly, making it unique and extra special.
Why Organic Cotton?
Organic cotton is grown without the use of fertilizers, pesticides or any other toxic chemicals. The eco-conscious methods used in organic farming, support a sustainable environment, helping to maintain soil fertility resulting in 100% natural cotton, with no hidden nasties. It's hypoallergenic, so won't irritate your skin.
