Details

Elephants never forget. Father elephant, with his ancestral memory, reminisces for junior, who is suitably impressed. Alaya Cholprasertsuk creates this whimsical scene on original cushion covers using batik on 100% cotton. Elephants hold a revered place in Thai society. Their massive size, yet seemingly gentle, sensitive natures and tremendous intelligence elicit fascination, joy, and awe from Thai people. The elephant appears in many Thai proverbs and sayings. Undoubtedly, the elephant holds pride of place as the national symbol of the Kingdom of Thailand.

Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax and resin (70%/30%) is painted onto areas where color is not desired and the fabric is dipped in a solution of reactive dye, water, salt, and sodium bicarbonate. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.

This pair will feature the same design, but the colors may vary slightly to those pictured, making each a unique work of art. Cushions not included.

I purchased all three wall hangings bu Alaya Cholprasertsuk. They evoke rich, warm, and mystical emotions of love. They are the centerpiece of my dining area and always the topic of conversation.

"Beautiful Elephant Scarf"

I bought 2 of these gorgeous scarves to help raise funds for an elephant sanctuary. They are reasonably priced for the quality. I always try to find unique items and like supporting artisans at the same time. NOVICA has so many wonderful elephant themed items to choose from!

Very beautiful and comfortable. First try was too small so I returned it for the next size up. It will be great in the summer heat.
