Karen busy in the studio

Karen has been busy making some new items combining fabric she has hand-dyed with indigo with Dutch wax fabrics.  Dutch wax prints, also known as African wax prints, are a type of batik common in West Africa.   See a few photos below (and one of her dogs, not helping her work), and find some of the items in the store.
