The cold temperatures and the snow has created some beautiful scenery this winter on the Island.
Have you ever wondered how the fabric in your Very Vineyard piece of clothing is made? When we show you the process I think you will appreciate the beauty of our prints even more. All our fabrics are hand printed using the traditional wax resist process of Batik.
Batik is the ancient art of applying wax as a resist to hand dyed colors in order to create beautiful textiles. Batik is common throughout the world, but Indonesia is especially well known for its beautiful designs and colorations. The work Batik (pronounced ‘Bah-Teak’) is originally an Indonesian- Malay word meaning “to dot”. Batik textile production has spread throughout the Hindu and Malay world, but the heart pf production remains in the Indonesian islands of Java and Bali. Using traditional methods, the artisans here have taken production to its highest degree of excellence.
