Batik Christmas Cards

Artisan Millogo Paul

We bring you this beautiful range of handmade batik cards directly from Burkina Faso in West Africa featuring typical scenes of African Village Life. These colourful cards depicting African village life are wonderful for all special occasions. We also have a range of Christmas cards portraying Christmas through African eyes.

The greeting cards are blank on the inside and use the traditional West African art form of 'batik'. This craft of decorating cloth using wax and dye has been practiced for centuries.

A batik is made by selecting areas of the cloth to be blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them afterwards the cloth is dyed. The parts of cloth covered by the wax resist the dye and remain the original colour.
