African Red Batik Elephant, Guinea Fowl, Fish, Turtle 60" W X 74 L" Handcrafted Zimbabwe
This Vintage Batik Handmade in Zimbabwe, incorporates traditional elements in Zimbabwean batik art, depicting the Elephant, Guinea Fowl, Fish ,Turtle and Abstract designs. The reds, brown, natural and navy colors of this batik are framed by a solid navy border.
What makes the batiks in my 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 happens because in Zimbabwe, I have always purchased from the individual artist and families who make the batiks as a group and as a small family run home-based business. This handmade textile is the work of one family in Zimbabwe who makes the batiks in their back yard.
This Batik is 100% Cotton and can be safely washed. The fabric is referred to as Backweave in Zimbabwe, it is 100% Cotton, but heavier than the cotton fabric that is referred to as Sheeting.
This beautiful item looks great as a wall hanging, tapestry, framed, it's fabulous thrown in the center of a bed or any interesting use you may have for it..
