Mermaid Cove by Kathy Engle for Island Batik
Inspired by the beauty of nature, this batiks collection includes colors of the aurora borealis and delicate patterns of under-the-sea flora and fauna. In a small Bali village, men and women of the community manage all aspects of the batiking production process. Team members perform the stamping of wax onto the fabric, dyeing, washing, and drying - passing down the batik artistry from generation to generation. The fabric is laid out in the rice fields, where strong sunlight is essential to ensure deep color and true color fastness.
