African Batik Tapestry Fabric Red Brown Green Gold 58"W X 75"L Handmade Zimbabwe
Vintage Batik handmade in Zimbabwe using traditional natural dyes and fabrics bringing elements of the earth as well to this tribal design. Warm earth colors are accented by muted red, gold and black. The ends are unfinished making this easy to use as a fabric, although it works very well just as it is.
Elephants, Guinea Fowl, Fish and Turtles and birds, all in a setting of African foliage and abstract tribal design. This is an amazing, traditional Zimbabwe designed Batik Tapestry
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, bedspread, tablecloth, ottoman or any interesting use you may have for it.
