Bomalang’ombe has a women’s economic development group, Tumaini (hope) that makes batik fabrics. We were introduced to the group leaders and heard a report of the progress and the future dreams of the group. We then saw a demonstration and got a chance to try folding and tying the fabric. The next night we were able to purchase some of the fabrics!
Starting the fold
This pattern is called Samosa
Tying string around the folded fabric
Preparing the chemicals for dying
Giving it a try!
This pattern uses small potatoes!
Gift of batiks
After batiks are made, there must be dancing!
