ORIGIN: This piece of clothing was made at the Batiking & Sewing Center in Cape Coast, Ghana. It's home to the largest production location for Global Mamas, comprising of nearly 100 independent, women-owned businesses, from batikers to seamstresses who work from their own shops or from their homes.
WHY BUY: Batik (pronounced ba-teek) is an ancient handmade fabric art. During the batik process, hot batik wax is painted or stamped onto fabric, which is then dyed. After one or more dyeings, the batik wax is removed, revealing differently colored patterns and designs. Cracks in the batik wax give patterns the “crackled” look so unique to a batik.
FIT NOTE: This style is a loose and relaxed fit. Size down if you prefer a more tailored fit.
