The Rain pillow sham is a modern and beautiful work of art in white and grey colours. Through the ancient and intricate art of batik a plain white fabric is transformed by a process consisting of several layers of wax and dyes. The artisans first apply hot melted wax, which acts as a resistant on the fabric, then each piece is carefully submerged into a dye bath and allowed to dry in the sun. After removing the wax by boiling it in water, the fabric is transformed into a variety of unique products and designs.
