Maasai women are often seen wearing brightly coloured shawls and kangas (skirts) made by wrapping large pieces of African Batik fabric around them. Batik is a method of dying fabric using wax and dye which is used throughout Africa and Asia. A pattern is marked using hot wax. When it is dry a coloured die is used to colour any fabric not covered by the wax. Finally the wax is melted off the fabric leaving behind white lines.
