They grow up so fast! Make sure you're keeping track with the So Big Batik Growth Chart. The colors and textures of this wall-hanging are achieved through the ancient technique of batik dying, which starts by hand-tracing an original design on a light but sturdy fabric. Hot wax and dye are expertly applied in an alternating process of adding color to certain areas of the fabric while preserving other areas with the wax. At the end of the process, all of the wax is removed to reveal the finished design. Handcrafted by artisans working with Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans in Burkina Faso
Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des ArtisansAtelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans is comprised of nearly 400 artisans in and around Ouagadougou, the capital city, and several in Bobo Dioulasso, the economic center of Burkina Faso. Most of the artisans work at the Centre National D’Artisanat, the Village Artisanal de Ouagadougou, which was started in 2000 by the Luxembourg government to showcase the work of Burkinabe artisans, and the Maison des Artisans. These three centers double as workshops and exhibition spaces. In addition, a few of the artisans work in their homes.
