Lou Zeldis BatikBedspread
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 was produced by Lou Zeldis before his death in 2012. 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. 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
These pieces were designed to be made into a bedspread by Lou so we have honoured this design and have sewn the two pieces into one. 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, two panels sewn together, commercial cotton, natural dyes.
Made by Lou Zeldis in Java, 2008.
