Silhouetted on crimson, delicate hibiscus flowers evoke thoughts of the tropics. They show the tonal variations of batik. Nyoman Nadri fashions this graceful robe with a flattering front-wrap style, wide sleeves and matching belt.
Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax is painted by hand onto areas where color is not desired. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and the process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.
