Lou Zeldis ShirtHand Drawn Batik
This hand-drawn batik shirt 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. 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
