African Batik Abstract Fabric/Tapestry Elephant, Birds Fish, in Geometric Design Browns, Gold, Burgundy 62" W X 122" L
African Batik Batik Textile, Elephant, Fish, Turtle, in browns, gold, burgundy colors, with geometric abstract, tribal designs. This textile shows warmth with its deep, rich colors. It was handmade in Zimbabwe using traditional natural dyes and fabrics bringing elements of the earth as well to this tribal design. The ends are unfinished making this easy to use as a fabric, although it works very well just as it is.
This is an amazing, traditional Zimbabwe designed Batik Tapestry. Some photos show the textile folded in half and draped over a bar, making it appear shorter.
The symbols and images throughout the traditional Zimbabwe Batik, show the individual artist's perception of art and their environment.
As this textile is handmade by a family in Zimbabwe, and not in a factory there are slight splotches of paint, some uneven lines and other signs of original art. This can be seen when zooming in on the photo.
What makes the batiks in this shop unique is that they are one of a kind and totally the vision of the artist. There may be a similar one but no two are alike.
This Batik is 100% Cotton Sheeting Fabric (as it's called in Zimbabwe).
This African Batik looks great as a wall hanging, tapestry, tablecloth, ottoman or any interesting use you may have for it.
