Traditional Hand-Stamped Batik Sarong
Traditional Hand-Stamped Batik Sarong
I recently received a beautiful custom batik sarong. This is a traditional sarong, rich in cultural meaning created by the Blue Hmong hill tribe.   Located in Thailand, this tribe has mastered the art of sarong creation and can be seen through the quality and colors of the sarong. The men make the batik stamps that the women use for decorating the cotton sarong. The sarongs are dyed and hand-stamped by members of the tribe.  

The sarong was purchased through Novica which works directly with thousands of master artisans in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, helping bring their beautiful creations and works to buyers worldwide.

With so many different types of sarongs originating from different places, it's nice to receive a unique sarong and learn about the story behind it. This elegant sarong represents a group of people in Thailand and is truly a work of art. While sarongs have many uses, I don't intend on using this sarong at the beach, rather it will be hung on my wall as a piece of art. The beautiful design, unique dyes, and high quality of the sarong can never be replicated.  

The sarong arrived wrapped in beautiful leaf paper.
