    Product Description
    The Green Aggie Print Hand-Batik Cotton Alicia Skirt is dyed by our artisans using a traditional batik technique, which involves drawing the aggie pattern on wood or foam and then carving out the shape. Each stamp is placed by hand and the colours are mixed together like an artist. The skirt uses 13 yards of fabric and creates an elegant fullness.

    How It's Made


    THE ART OF HAND BATIKING

    Studio One Eighty Nine collaborates with artisans in Ghana, in Cape Coast, Accra and Tsatoe to preserve the ancient form of Batik. The cloth is first washed, soaked and beaten with a large mallet. We draw patterns with a pencil that is later carved into their shape in wood or in a sponge. They are then dipped in hot wax, which functions as a dye-resist. The wax is applied using tools such as a sponge or wooden stamp. The artisan mixes dye just as a painter mixes paint to achieve the desired hue. After the cloth is dry, the resist is removed by boiling the cloth. No two pieces of textile will ever be exactly the same, each piece is a work of art, each piece is a painting. It takes 1-2 days to hand-batik fabric for an item such as a dress or a pair of pants. We employ anywhere from 1 - 20 artisans depending on the volume of textile production.
