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 Geringsing Bali. Lou was fascinated by the protective double ikat from Tenganan in Bali.

This cloth is wonderful as a wall hanging or as a table cloth. 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.

Batik hand drawn, single panel, commercial cotton, natural dyes.
Made by Lou Zeldis in Java, 2004.
140 x 90 cm / 55 x 35.5 in
