Handcrafted Balinese Rayon Batik Robe in Red and Yellow
Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax is painted by hand onto areas where color is not desired. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and the process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.
This handpainted batik robe is a truly original work of art. Sunlight, water, dye and temperature all factor into the look of the finished robe. This should be considered a unique design made especially for you. Colors and pattern placement will vary.

Oh my gosh, so soft, such lovely drape, so well made, so beautiful. I need one in another color, right?! I'm 5'4 and slender built, robe fits great. I think it would accommodate much taller and even shorter women; not sure about closure/coverage for very heavy women. Highly recommend this artisan.
This is an absolutely beautiful piece of clothing. It's hard to find an elegant robe, and I have been looking for quite a while. This one caught my eye and it is just as stunning in person as it is in the photos. It's graceful and sexy at the same time. Highly recommend!
Beautiful fabric, beautiful colors, very well made. Just what I needed to match the weather: not too heavy, not too thin, just perfect. Thanks a lot
