Batik tapestry by the late, great Lou Zeldis. Lou spent years of his life in Indonesia learning the traditional way of making Ikat and Batik tapestries, this was one of his works from his time there. Lou hand painted the wax-resist stroke patterns on the fabric before it got dunked into the deep natural indigo vats for dying.

Cult favorite jewelry designer Lou Zeldis was an American expat living in Bali, which provided both the source of his inspiration and the offbeat materials used in his work. Found objects such as pebbles, shells, and raw gemstones, paired with Lou’s elegant gold-wrapping and sand-cast silver techniques, result in pieces that are simultaneously organic and elegant, and always a little rough around the edges.
