Batik. Botanical dye printed with metal stamp on organic hand woven cotton (80 x 140 cm)
The almost black colour derives from the Indigo leaf (Indigofera tinctoria) and the Pomegranate fruit (Punica granatum). The fabric has been immersed 8 times to reach the darkest colour of the blue tincture and 3 times in the dye extracted from the fruit to intensify it.
In the mythology of Bali (Indonesia) the BARONG represents an animal creature, a protector spirit. A playful character, it scares off the evil spirits with his supernatural protective power. This textile, black & white, connects light and darkness, good and evil, in harmony. For Balinese, it can act as protective piece for the body or a physical space.
Made in the hills of Bali, in collaboration with master batik artisans, in peaceful times and safe surroundings.
