This hand-drawn batik is a Lou Zeldis original. It is the result of much time and effort using traditional techniques of wax-resist patterning and natural dyes. Lou was masterful in the use of design using age old batik techniques as his media- the images were inspired by nature, found objects, and his travels across the world. They are a one of a kind as with Lou’s death in 2012 they are no longer being produced.
This cloth is wonderful as wall hangings or as a table cloth or wrap yourself up in a sarong. There are three in this series of Crazy Wheel with a brown stripe. Please remember that I am photographing at home due to social distancing so when the wind blows the textile is not always straight – this is not a reflection on the squareness of the actual textile.
