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.
Once dry, the banners are hemmed by village craftswomen. Machine-washable on a cold water cycle and machine-dry on gentle.
Measures 20 inches wide by 27 inches long. The top is folder over to create a 1-7/8 inch pocket for a dowel or rod.
