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. The Javanese script at the bottom translates the motif the name of the makers and the name of the designer, Lou Zeldis with the year produced.

The motif is called panah or arrow. Lou spent many years in Indonesia and was fascinated with colour and form in art and nature. This cloth is wonderful as wall hangings or as a table cloth or wrap yourself up in a sarong. This has been designed with a dark and light side as were the traditional batiks called pagi sore which refected day and night.

Threads of Life has negotiated the rights to continue to produce Lou Zeldis designs with Indonesian artist. Lou Zeldis also designed jewelry and this is available at https://www.louzeldis.com
