Forest Floor 1 Tjap Batik Silk Scarf by Keith Smith (Available for Shipping or Local Pick-Up)

Only 1 left in stock



Multi-color batik silk scarf with leaf design applied by using silk dyes and an Indonesian batik stamp (tjap). The scarf is 58 x 11 inches.

Yellow silk dye was used to create the base color on a white silk scarf. The leaf design was applied in hot wax using a copper tjap, which protects the base yellow color. The interior of each leaf was then hand colored using several different dyes. The dark brown background color was then hand dyed.

The dyes were ‘set’ by steaming for 3 hours, which also removes most of the wax. A final dry cleaning removed the remaining wax.

The scarf is hand washable in warm water or can be dry cleaned.

Keith Smith studied batik techniques with Agus Ismoyo and Nia Fliam at brahma tirta sari in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
