Gorgeous c. 1970's Indonesian Batik pillows. This vintage Indomesian batik fabric was created in Jogyakarta on the Island of Java. Batik fabrication involves a wax resist dye process whose origin can be traced back to 4th century BC Egypt.  Batiks from this area are characterized by the use of three primary dyes derived from natural sources and which symbolized the three principal Hundu deities: Brahma, Vishnu and Siva. Batiks from this region also incorporate elements or symbols derived from the Javanese conceptualization of the universe. Depending upon the technique used to apply the wax resist to the fabric, the creation of the individual batik can take from 2 to 3 days to 3 months. In this particular batik there are little beings depicted throughout the textile with what appear to be either large angel or eagle wings. The colors are deep indigo and ivory white. The artistry and detailed execution of the piece indicate that the batik was undoubtedly created by a skilled artist. I chose to fabricate create these pillows using a "French" corner, tiny-tiny welts and a custom filler composed of 30% goose down to 70% goose feather. The pillows would mix perfectly with other quality blue/indigo textiles such as antique French ticking or Ikat and would be perfect for a beach cottage or mountain retreat. Four pillows are available and they are priced individually. Thanks for visiting.
