Sleeping  Bee Batiks SE Portland, Oregon


Batik is the ancient art of utilizing beeswax to resist dye applications on fabrics. We make a variety of products at the studio…Want to see videos of our production series?Big Brush and wax ORANGE

Our “hands-on” creative process includes melting locally raised beeswax by Glen Andreson, using a tool to draw the wax on so it seeps into the material, placing fabric in multiple dye baths, and boiling out the wax in the final stage with collected Portland rainwater.

  1. I have several batik shirts and love every one of them! Fabulous designs and colors. One of my favorites is the peacock feather with instruments. I’ve special ordered some items including a toddler outfit. The possibilities are endless.

  2. Thanks Jill,

We strive to create quality products with the most sustainable methods and pride ourselves on skill and craftsmanship that we have developed over the years. We utilize locally-raised beeswax, brushes, batik tools, buckets, dyes, a washing machine, collected rain water, boiling water, a propane-fueled heat source and occasionally an iron. We are trying to get up to speed on our ordering process through the blog (so keep checking back…) , but in the mean time we encourage our past, present and future customers to access our “First Contact form” as it allows you to communicate directly with us to get your desired item.
