MEXICALI TRAVELS: EXPLORING THE ART OF BATIK IN BALI

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 at least once before it is batiked, allowing a complimentary color or colors 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!

Come with us on a behind-the-scenes tour of how this amazing art form is used to create the batik beauty we love so much! Check out our batik collection here.
