Flowers on the wall ~ Batic Maheshwari Dupatta 
Wax resist an old tradition of dyeing fabric in West Bengal , Batik, known for the cracked effect it produces has been provided with a little twist at our production house. We try and apply thick layers of wax in order to avoid the cracks and produce a set of floral and quirky designs.
The people behind the entire production from the process of applying wax initially to the dyeing of fabric in the end are a set of talented rural women who have been trained in the art. Our production house comprises mainly of females who work in order to become independent and dream of providing their children with better lives by getting a little extra income.
The sole aim which we follow is to move batik from the cracked look and provide a fresh new look by just producing cracks on certain areas of the design hence fabricating a riot of colors in quirky and kitsch motifs.
Mixing wax blocking along with hand painting of wax is yet another feature about our house. We try and blend two styles together in order create designs which have a great finesse.
Majorly trying to make batik readily available for all age groups by moving away from the accustomed style to creation in a distinct way.
