On our first day we hit the ground running and visited this batik "factory". It was very hot and we needed the fans that were given to us as part of a welcoming gift. I saw headers for Princess Mirah, a brand that you can find in some of our local quilt shops. There are lots of these independent factories all over Bali. They are considered subcontractors.
Walking down the driveway, we saw this prepared batik drying in the sun.
The next step was to dye it with another color. This was not my fabric.
I chose orange. My fabric would remain pink where it was stamped with wax. .
They added a third color, green to my piece.
You may be asking how they create consistent product. That is exactly my question
Here is my finished batik
and here is Don's. He started with a light blue piece of fabric.
Congratulations! Hope you make something fun.
