Hmm Batiks...These were send from Suriname but originally from Indonesia, Java. The fabric is a waxy stiff cotton you can easily fold in to desired shapes, easy to wrap around you like a Sarong, tie it around your head as an Angisa(headpiece)or use it as a scarf.
The style of the patterns varies per culture but the principle is the same, pure cotton in various colors and patterns symbolising religions/nature/status/emotions
I love to pare them with indigo jeans and went all the way this time...
Side-note// I'm wearing my boyfriend's clothes Ha he hatesss it but I just Can't-Get-Enough-Of-It... Damn Son
Indigo patterns// Tunisian & Ashanti weaving

It's that Time again... DDDD.I.YYYY
For today I have this Choker Necklace.. I simplified the concept for you in a regular choker design.
Needed to slide that one through I'm sorry..
Here is the DIY
First measure out a Cross: Horizontal 13 cm Vertical 21 cm
Mark points A to B at 1,5 cm and points C to D at 5,5 cm
Sketch you innercircle by connecting points B to C all the way around, do the same for your outercircle A to D...
it is more of an oval, but you know what I mean..
Now cut your paper choker out and cut line A to B open, to fit your design..
Ok looking good... lay it on the leather or other fabric and cut the design out.
Closures: Check out what kind of closures you want.. I did an easy one.. //two wholes and a string//
Embellishments: Use everything you can find .. go for romantic lace and pearls or rock the studs & crystals...Go BUZARK with different chains or keep it simple with a clean cut..
Glue a second model to the back of your choker.. mine became a bit bubbly because of all the studs stud studded...
