You're Kidding! Batik Across the Street?

We have lived in Ghana for a year and on two occasions have made the journey north of Accra to Esthers to make batik prints on fabric, a fascinating art.  We just discovered this week that an even bigger and yes less expensive operation is across the street (literally) from the MTC.

The owner's name, and rightly so, is Prosper.  This is his establishment.

Here is where the fabric sits in tubs to soak
This is a photo of the fabric drying

Prosper's wife does the stamping (Prosper hand carves the stamps)
The irons are kept hot in a tub of smoldering charcoal

And Voila, Batik Across the Street
