Handpainted African Batiks

Handpainted in The Gambia, West Africa

These handpainted batiks are very special. They're created by Neneh Jallow, one of the most talented batik artists in The Gambia. 

Neneh paints each piece with up to five layers of wax, one for each subtle variation in colour, before dyeing and over dyeing in a progression of dye vats.

All fabrics are 100% cotton in a subtle Damask weave. 

Fabrics are 120 cm / 48 in wide, approximately.

The unit for ordering these fabrics is a half metre measured along the selvedge. 1 half metre = 19 inches, approximately.
