You will find our boutique in the historic district of St. George's, where
the architecture is centuries old. We are on Young Street, the street that
connects the Carenage town to the Market side of town. This magic place is
just a short walk up the hill from the Market and the picturesque Carenage.
After peering through the large street level windows of a more than 200 year
old building, enter our boutique through a kabu kali wood door, where you
find a touch from way back: exposed sections of the old brick wall create an
eye catching backdrop to showcase our fantastic batik creations. The
boutique is housed in an old fish monger house, one of the first buildings
in St. George's, built by the English over 250 years ago. Its beams, bricks
and fish scale roof tiles were brought from England in the 1700's as ballast
on the big buccaneer ships.
Here you will see wearable art in this little boutique in a way you've never
seen before. The exuberant colours of the tropics wrap around you,
enchanting you with captivating equatorial splendor. The hand painted batik
clothing, unique accessories and jewellery will delight you. With gift
items and batik art tucked into many nooks and crannies, air conditioning,
jazzy music, and light filtering through the windows where a rootsie tree
draws a shadow on the wall, it's a cool and quirky shopping atmosphere.
Our boutique where we sell, and our batik workshop where we make everything,
are under one roof. *It's just so exciting* that the 'engine room' (that's
how we call the batik work studio) is now open to visitors and you can peek
behind the scene, and tour the batik studio. Friendly salespeople in the
boutique show you the Art Fabrik selection of batik wearable art and
accessories, Caribbean jewellery and other carefully selected presents to
buy for friends and family. And then if you wish to visit the batik studio,
they will escort you through a beautiful arched entrance in a nostalgic
courtyard where you can see the batik process of dying and beautiful batik
fabrics hanging in the tropical breeze. Up the stairs, you come to the
beating heart of the batik studio, where you will be amazed by the creative
processes of our production. Your eyes have never ever seen such a quirky
place where batik is made - designed – tested – created – traced – waxed –
dyed – boiled out – and hung to dry in the Caribbean sun.
Our customers from all over the globe love our boutique and batik workshop,
and are fans of our selection of award winning Grenadian batik and unique
Caribbean style craft-creations. We ship your order to you wherever you
