Batik

Our women in the Self-Sustainability Program have been learning how to make batik cloth.


 Batik basically means that you use wax to make a design and then you dye the fabric. The dye will not permeate where the wax is. The women have experimented a lot as they have been perfecting their technique. I'm very proud of their efforts and their results. We will use the batik cloth in our quilts and various projects. We will also be selling the fabric in our shop.
