African Batik Tapestry Navy Sienna Cream Gold
Vintage Batik handmade in Zimbabwe using traditional natural dyes and fabrics bringing elements of the earth as well as elephant, fish, and turtle to this tribal design. Colors of navy, gold, taupe, cream, mauve and a range of sienna browns, are dominate in this textile that is framed with a black and cream repeat line pattern painted border.
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 naturally made 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 or any interesting use you may have for it.
