Vibrant Earth dance depiction of the High Sierras.
These beautiful batik banners are made in Bali in Indonesia by a group of women from the Ubud region. Batik is a resist-dye process. Wax is applied in the design or areas that stay white, such as the drawing of the pattern itself. The dyes are painted on and blended. The dyes do not cross over the wax lines. Once the dyes are permanent, the wax is removed and the banners are spread out to dry. This time-honored, hand-made process is what renders the amazing detail and watercolor look to the fabric. Each banner is unique so the colors may vary slightly from what's pictured her.
Once dry, the banners are hemmed by village craftswomen. Woven of Rayon from wood pulp, this manner is machine-washable on a cold water cycle and machine-dry on gentle. Banner measures 33 inches wide by 35.5 inches long. 2 inch top hemmed pocket for a rod or dowel. The banner weighs 4.2 ounces.
