BATIK BLANKETS
You are probably wondering to yourself, if you have never been to Indonesia, or other parts of Southeast Asia, what is batik? Well, batik is an art form very popular in this part of the world, and its unique and beautiful style is catching on in other parts of the world now.
Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the west as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot.
To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colorful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing or showing.

Contemporary batik, while owing much to the past, is markedly different from the more traditional and formal styles. For example, the artist may use etching, discharge dyeing, stencils, different tools for waxing and dyeing, wax recipes with different resist values and work with silk, cotton, wool, leather, paper or even wood and ceramics.
Our bed covers, blankets, and pillows follow this same traditional format, and use a unique blend of cotton and rayon fabrics, arranged in a stunningly beautiful quilt like pattern. They are machine washable as well, and bring an elegant, and sophisticated look to any bedroom.
