Liberian Tie Dye Batik
Hand tie dyed using traditional Liberian methods, each batik fabric is made with natural and organic dye on 100% cotton fabric.
Batik is a wax-resist dyeing technique that allows a design to be printed or drawn onto plain, cotton fabric using melted wax. The fabric is then dyed and the parts of the design, which are covered by the wax, are resisted. After the wax has been removed the original background color of the fabric is made visible.
