Thetraveljunkie.org – This time we are not going to talk about food or travel. When we stayed at The Sidji Hotel, Pekalongan. We went to Pak Zahir place and I couldn’t wait for the second chance to spend time with him, learn more and more about Indigo Batik from him.
Anyway, we used stamps from Pak Zahir‘s collection and dyed all our pieces 3-4 times to get the deep indigo we were after.
When the fabric came out of the dye it was a shade of green and I was fascinated watching it as it dried and gradually changing into the deep blue colour.
We always love the unpredictability of natural dyes that Mother Nature brings.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Pekalongan, Central Java.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Travel Junkie than ever but advertising revenues across the blog are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our blogsm as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Travel Junkie’s independent, travel blogsm takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our blog posting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $5, you can support The Travel Junkie – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
