    Batik is a time-consuming process. First wax is applied to the bones in the desired pattern. The bones are then dipped in dye, parts that are waxed take the dye. Once the wax is removed, a print like the one on these bracelets is produced.

    Additionally, when a cow is used for food, not a single piece is wasted!  These unique bracelets are eco-friendly and sustainable, as they promote the ethical use of animals for needed sustenance, needed employment, and independence and empowerment for entire communities.
