These garments have been produced using the 'batik' technique of wax resist dying.
The wax is applied onto the cloth using stamps in the desired patterns. The cloth is then hand dyed and boiled to remove the wax, forming the pattern in negative.
This hand printing and dyeing results in small irregularities in print and colour giving these garments a unique look.
Other methods used in this category include crochet and applique.
