Tee Batik: Speed Bird
As part of #The100dayproject this year, I turned my fascination with Indonisian batiks and Dutch wax fabrics into a theme for daily inspiration.
One motif with many meanings including change, prosperity and freedom.
In Ghana; ‘..rich today, poor tomorrow’, the transience of riches. In Togo; ‘Air Afrique’. The fabric was used in the uniform of a local airline company. In the Ebo region of Angola it is called Eneke, for ‘… if the hunters learn to shoot without missing, they have learned to fly without perching.’
