This elegant and sophisticated 100% fine cotton batik is a piece of fabric art handcrafted by a Chinese artisan who excels in both Chinese traditional art and indigo batik. Indigo batik, using natural indigo plant for dye materials, is one of the oldest art forms in China. It has been a sign of sophistication and refinement in China since the Zhou Dynasty (BC 770 - BC 403). At that time, many wealthy households appointed artisans to design beautiful patterns for home furnishing purposes. Nowadays, indigo batik seems to be revitalized again, and you will find many Japanese and European households incorporating it as an integral part of their home décor.
In 2006, the Chinese government aligned with the United Nations UNESCO heritage policy, accredited Chinese Indigo Batik an Intangible Cultural Heritage, recognizing its contribution to cultural diversity and human creativity, safeguarding this human treasure and allowing it to be kept alive.
“This handmade fabric art has rich Oriental flavor. It has sophisticated patterns with many great details and good aesthetic balance. It is fabulous!”
