As the Kekfesto*- blue dyeing design, is a big part of the Rosemary`s decoration, the artist, Ildiko Toth, who made our special pieces.
*Kékfestő is the traditional Hungarian textile art of blue-dyeing. Using a wax-resist process similar to batik, white cotton or linen fabric is block-printed with molten wax to form the pattern. The fabric is then dyed blue. When the wax is removed, the areas protected by wax reveal the pattern in white on a blue background. This endangered art is still practiced today using centuries old equipment and techniques.
