Green Musings of an Eco Resort

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Making skirts like the ones pictured below doesn't happen quickly, but once they're made they do tend to sell quickly. This is the time of year when our art department has the time to "catch-up" on production for sales during our season.

Each of the skirts shown above have been custom made and none of them look exactly the same. Why? We use a process called batiking, which is a method of dyeing fabric so that parts of the fabric not intended to be dyed are covered with removable wax. The hand-created design and colors can be completely different for each skirt, and are.

Shown below are a few skirts with wax (and thus part of the design) being applied.

How often do you get to wear a piece of clothing that nobody else in the world owns? They make great gifts for that special someone in your life! hint: almost all women visiting our gallery are drawn to their originality and design, and once they try them they almost always buy one. Interested in trying a class while you're here this winter? Give us a call or send us an email and we can sign you up. 340 776 6226 x248 or
