Batik/ botanical dye on organic hand woven cotton (80 x 280 cm)
Natural wax printed with a metal batik stamp on organic hand woven cotton, followed by a double layer of hand painted wax on the printed design. Four, eight and fifteen immersions in sequence in natural Indigo (Indigofera tinctoria plant) to achieve the blue variations, in between drying periods. The first, second and third blue tones are covered in wax, in sequences, to isolate them from the following dyeing immersions that will darken the blues.The design reveals after when the wax melts in hot water. A hand and natural process that involves at least two months of work by various hands and minds, connected towards the same vision.
Fatima carries the vision of a specific trip. A diamond eye is created out of triangles, the sharp mountains of Morocco, where peasants live in carved caves. Inside, at night, on a woven rug, they have a warm meal with sweet mint tea, enlighten by a fire that sleeps with them, after a long day in the wild winds.
