About Batikwalla by Victoria
For years I knew what batik was, but I didn't know how to make it. Now I'm 100% self taught.
What is batik? Batik is an ancient art form, layering molten beeswax with a series of dye baths over time to create a design that becomes part of the fiber itself. Nature shows its magnificence through every detail of the wax as it breaks down in the process.
I discovered batik in the early days of my travels to the west coast as a wanderlust teen. My first sales started at funky craft fairs and colorful music festivals, including the Eugene Saturday Market and the Oregon Country Fair, and my most favorite, the parking lot scene of the Grateful Dead concerts back in the early 90's. This is how it all began. Once I tapped into the creative process, there was no turning back, and I have pursued it intently ever since.
Enjoy this eclectic craft and all the beauty it has to offer!
