African Batik Prints

From Mozambique.

The process of making a Batik print, is quite an involved one: The artist starts off by drawing a picture on cloth. These drawings are then outlined with wax. The wax covers the area of the cloth that should not be dyed. The cloth is then placed in the sun for a short while to dry and then placed in clothes dye. The dyes contain a fixing agent to properly bond with the material. It is then again left in the sun to dry. After the drying process, it is then placed between two absorbent sheets of paper, and ironed with a coal or electric iron to melt away the wax. This process is continuously repeated until the desired images are obtained.

These Batik prints are very popular the world over. Here in Mozambique, they are made in the most primitive way without any modern tools.

Tourists buy these items by the arm full when visiting Mozambique and Swaziland. They make a beautiful piece of art when framed behind glass.

Measurements: 71cm. (L) X 105cm. (W) (28.4" X 42").
