The process to create batik goes back to 4th century BC Egypt. Batik accessories are made from Kenyan cow bones and are bleached using a simple dye and heat process.
Beeswax is vital to the Batik dyeing process, due to it’s resistant properties. When applied hot to bone beads, it would be allowed to dry briefly – sinking into the bone, coating it with a lacquer finish that dye could not penetrate. Batik dyes are generally developed using natural resources such as tree bark, sap and plant extract. Darker blue/ black dyes were created using flowers from indigo plants.
100% of the material used to make these trays are natural and come from Kenya!
