African Batik

Whilst in Tanzania, I meet a really cool guy, his name is John.

John is 76 years old and lives in Arusha, East Africa. He’s a very talented man, with a special skill.

John hand crafts African Candle wax batiks.

John walks the streets from dusk till dawn, promoting and selling his African batiks to the 1000’s of tourists that pass through. I admire his willingness at 75.

The entire process can take up to 2-3 days to complete one standard “27.5×21.5” African batik.

Firstly, John draws the design often symbolic to the African Culture, animals, faith, work, motherhood, dancing and playing traditional instruments.

The next step is to pour hot wax on the selected area’s of the fabric, this is left to dry. John then applies the dye to the un-waxed area. The wax prevents the different color dye’s merging together.

No two batiks will ever be the same, as they are all hand designed.

African candle wax batiks are made from 100% cotton.

Gorgeous colors to enhance any room in your home or office.

The candle wax batiks are easily cared for. Simply sponge down with a damp cloth, this keeps them dust free. To keep wrinkle free, you may iron the reverse side on a very low temperature.

African batiks look fabulous framed or unframed.

I love these batiks, I’ve framed a few of the animal batiks and hung them in my children’s bedroom. They look really cool.

Chat soon.
