African Wax Print

Blue African Wax 


Cards & Accessories
A really interesting commission's been happening and am really enjoying working on it.  I studied batik at art school so knew I would get my teeth into it.  African Wax Prints tell stories of relevance to the wearer, such as proverbs, poems and traditional African fables. The colours also hold significance as they can represent social standing, age, tribal orientation and marital status. This design is based on a Nigerian proverb - "However far the stream flows, it never forgets its source."
