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. This batik is from a collection produced prior to Lou’s death in 2012. The leaf motif was a common these for Lou as he was in awe of the way that shadow and light played on nature in the tropics.
Threads of Life has negotiated the rights to continue to produce Lou Zeldis designs with Indonesian artists and expects that the first small production run will be available in December 2020. Lou Zeldis also designed jewelry and this is available at https://www.louzeldis.com
This luxurious textile is wonderful as a wall hanging or to wrap yourself up in as a scarf or sarong.
