African Batik Guinea Fowl Earth Tones Gold White 60" X 78" Zimbabwe
This vintage batik is handmade in Zimbabwe using traditional natural dyes and fabrics bringing elements of the earth as well as fish, guinea fowl and earth toned tribal design.
The symbols and images throughout the traditional Zimbabwe Batik, show the individual artist's perception of art and their environment.
This Batik is 100% Cotton Sheeting and can be gently hand washed.
I use the same names for the fabric as the artisan family in Zimbabwe who makes these batiks; they call this 100% Cotton Batik Sheeting as that is the texture it is closest to. Many of the batiks on this site are called back weave. All of the batiks with fringe are back weave.
These handmade batiks have slight markings and what some may call imperfections on a machine made item, although it's a part of the beauty and uniqueness of handmade.
This beautiful work of art looks great as a wall hanging, tapestry, bedspread or any interesting use you may have for it.
