Lou Zeldis BatikDecorative Hanging
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 Zeldis 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.
The motif on this textile is called sebrakemang or split strips. This cloth has a split in the centre so it can be used as a door hanging like the Japnese Noren.
This cloth is wonderful as wall hangings or as a table cloth or wrap yourself up in a sarong.
Batik hand drawn, single panel, commercial cotton, natural dyes.
Made by Lou Zeldis in Java, 2009.
