Your little hippie will love swirling and twirling in this fun Balinese batik panel dress! Made of vibrant hand-batiked fabric, these kid friendly colors will also please mom and dad. With a tie back and ruched straps to ensure a comfy and secure fit, even as she grows! All Mexicali Blues batik items are handmade in Bali, Indonesia, by artisans who have learned this ancient traditional art as it has been passed down through the generations. Each hand-batiked piece of fabric is created by blocking out selected areas of the cloth by brushing or stamping hot wax over it, and then dyeing the cloth. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. Often, the fabric is dyed once before it is batiked, allowing a complimentary color to show through the stamped or stenciled pattern. We just love the way this process makes every Balinese batik item we sell a one-of-a-kind work of art!
