Island Goddess Two Piece Tropical Dress

From: $165.00

We love this skirt and top combo! The straight cut tank top has a rounded hem that is 2 inches longer in back, making it perfect to wear with a belt (matching batik hand beaded hip belt shown here – contact us if you would like one!). The ankle length skirt has a flat front and an elastic back and a flowing full A line with four knee high slits. Beautiful in any of our hand painted batik fabrics, this is an outfit that can take you from a casual lunch to a beach wedding without missing a beat.

Tropical Tantrum's Batik Fabrics

Tropical Tantrum is famous for our beautiful colors and quality hand painted batik fabrics. Our color combinations are unique, durable, and crafted with care to retain their vibrancy and soft, silky feel. We take great pride in our fabrics - they are truly the hallmark of our clothing and accessories. The batik process is one that has been used for thousands of years to create beautiful fabrics of all kinds

What is Batik?

Batik is created with a technique called "wax-resist dyeing". The fabric is printed with wax, which resists the color of dye. The wax is then removed to reveal a pattern. Multiple applications of wax and dye create intricate and beautiful designs and depth of color.

Although experts disagree as to the precise origins of batik, similar processes can be traced back 1,500 years to Egypt and the Middle East. Samples have also been found in Turkey, India, China, Japan, and West Africa from past centuries. Batik has evolved over the centuries into a great art form, featuring intricate patterns and beautiful colors. Present day Indonesia is the home of some of the finest examples of this craftsmanship. Though based in Kauai, Tropical Tantrum is proud to produce our fabrics in Bali as part of this elegant, artistic tradition.

Tropical Tantrum uses fabric with a high thread count to maintain the integrity of our batik colors and designs. The result is not only beautiful, but also extremely soft and comfortable to wear.
