Framed Original Batik by Donovan Roebert - South Africa

Although this art form incorporates an African technique and theme it has universal appeal. The paste resist technique has been used as a means of decorating fabric in Africa for centuries. A paste resist is applied, followed by natural dyes. The paste resist masks the part of the fabric, which later forms the outline of the design. Once painted, the cotton is washed to remove the resist and the final pattern emerges. Donovan Roebert uses the traditional paste made from flour & water; along with specially formulated fabric paints which are sun dried & baked to ensure color fastness. These beautiful painted cloths have found their way into homes beyond the borders of Africa.
This spectacular batik is magnificently framed.
