Green and Blue Spiral Batik Sarong by PuaWear on Etsy

I just bought one...only $22.00 darn fabulous from the islands Beautiful hand-dyed batik sarong made of tightly woven rayon with a spiral pattern in blue and green tones. Large blue spirals are doubled on the border. Very elegant when worn as a skirt, wrapped into a dress, or as a beach cover-up. What is Batik? Batik is a traditional Asian art that uses wax as a resist as it is placed on fabric and then dying the material. The waxing and dyeing can be repeated as many times as necessary to achieve multiple colors and more varied designs. The final process is removing the wax from the material. This can be done by ironing the fabric between pieces of clean newsprint or repeatedly rinsing it in boiling water -- over and over and over... The end result is a colorful and unique creation. Sarongs are very versatile and can also be used as a tablecloth, wall hanging, or as a light summer throw. Measures 70"x42"
