Meet Our Artisans - Fiber

I use batik, an ancient textile art to create one of a kind fiber art. I currently work mainly on silk in the form of scarves, shawls, wraps, mens ties and wall hangings. Batik is a resist process. The designs are hand-drawn with molten wax using brushes and a pen-like tool called a tjanting. Layers of color and design are built up by alternately applying wax and dyes.
