This Batik tapestry is hand-painted and uses the ancient 'La Ran' technique to dye the background. Known contemporarily as the 'wax dye' technique, it involves applying wax on hand-woven fabric to prevent the hand-painted pattern from absorbing the dye. As the wax cracks naturally during the dying process, beautiful blue or red lines appears on the hand-painted pattern. These lines are called ice lines.

This Chinese Batik Stone Art Wall Tapestry was inspired by the intriguing carving on the stone walls found in the region.

The Story Behind the Art

These beautiful tapestries are one of the traditional art pieces created by the Chinese minority known as Miao people who live in the Southwestern part of China. In this region of China there are many high mountains and historically it has been isolated, hence the Miao people have developed their own unique art and culture separate from the Chinese majority known as Han. Wax-dyed tapestry is one of the well known crafts to come from this. The patterns and methodology used in creating these tapestries has been passed down from generation to generation. Selling through WorldStock allows the Miao people to keep this ancient art form alive.

  • Cool!

    Our guests enjoy trying to "interpret" the figures on this wall hanging. We make up our own stories. Attractive piece.

  • Exactly what I needed

    The colors and quality are beyond my expectations. This tapestry adds the perfect blend of colors to my asian/southwest eclectic motif.

  • Not a quality tapestry.

    I purchased this tapestry along with the similarly priced Embroidered Rust-Red Tapestry (Guatemala) also on Overstock.com and was very pleasantly surprised with the Guatemalan tapestry. It exceeded my expectations. On the other hand, this tapestry was more or less a piece of cloth with some ink stamped onto it. There is no pattern made of thread, it is just a screen print. It is on its way back. Sorry.

  • too dark

    I bought this to go in our 1/2 bath. The picture showed a lot more light blue, that's why I bought it. It was mostly dark blue, not much color at all. I realize it's hand made and no two are a like but the colors are nothing like the picture. Thinking about returning it.
