This hand-drawn batik is a Lou Zeldis original. It is the result of much time and effort using traditional techniques of wax-resist patterning and natural dyes. Lou Zeldis was masterful in the use of design using age old batik techniques as his media- the images were inspired by nature, found objects, and his travels across the world. They are one-of-a-kind as with Lou’s death in 2012 they are no longer being produced.

This textile is from the body of work of Lou Zeldis. The Javanese script at the bottom translates the motif the name of the makers and the name of the designer, Lou Zeldis with the year. The motif is called daun bodi or the leaves from the bodi tree.

This cloth is wonderful as wall hangings or as a table cloth or wrap yourself up in a sarong. Please remember that I am photographing at home due to social distancing so when the wind blows the textile is not always straight – this is not a reflection on the squareness of the actual textile.

Batik hand drawn, single panel, light weight commercial cotton, natural dyes.
Made by Lou Zeldis in Java, 2010
242 x 106 cm / 95.5 x 41.5 in
