Batik Boutique

A stylish way to spruce up your home for summer is with bold prints like geometric patterns, and what I'm currently loving, Batik Patterns!  

True Batik is made by brushing or drawing hot wax over cloth and then dying it.  The parts covered in the wax resist the dye and remain the original color while the areas without wax are dyed into intricate patterns.  This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colorful designs.

Designer Lawrence-Bullard covered the walls of Hollywood talent agent Nick Styn's master bedroom in a paisley printed batik fabric
