NOVICA

Cotton batik shawl, 'Mystic Forest' (Thailand)

Nisa's mastery of batik methods is magnificently evident in this unique cotton shawl. The artisan uses beeswax to create the detailed patterns on white cotton, which she dyes in hues of bottle green, russet, black and sky blue. Nisa stitches the hems of her shawls entirely by hand for a special touch.
