African Violets offers a unique twist to traditional batik design. With this collection, Banyan Batiks combined texture and unexpected color combinations of grey with navy, and rust with aqua to create a richness to the line that you will surely love. For the novelty print, there’s a look back into the Indonesian culture, where elephants were viewed as a god of knowledge, and created a toss-like elephant print. African Violets is in shops now!
