Swaziland Batik Scarves


This thriving social enterprise is based in Swaziland and employs 35 artisans full time. These include batik makers, a group of 13 women who trace patterns on to plain white fabric and apply melted wax within the outline. There are also four women as dye-artisans in the “Color-house,” where fabric in a variety of colors is hung out to dry in the sunshine. These women dye, treat, de-wax and hang fabric. They also employ four seamstresses who then create the beautiful infinity scarves.
