New Batik Art on Silk by Shalini Tandon

We are very excited to offer another local Orlando artist's work! Shalini Tandon has practiced the ancient art of batik for more than 35 years. Originally from India, where she graduated with a Fine Arts degree, Shalini infuses a rich cultural tradition with fine art. Her batik paintings on silk have been featured in galleries throughout Central Florida and in other parts of the United states as well.

What is batik?
Batik is an ancien
t art technique that uses hot wax as a resist for dyes on fabric or paper. Basic batik is very straight forward and simple, but advanced multi-colored and multi-layered batik is very complex and time consuming. A single piece of multi-colored batik work can take months to create.
"A true art form should encourage the viewer to participate in its creation. Through the use of imagination the viewer should be allowed to create a story that underlies the visual interpretation, and the art should communicate with the view, thus the view becomes part of the creation. Batik is such an art form."

-Shalini Tandon
Shalini's art captures elements of people and their natural surroundings to create a visual story with fluid images. She uses only silk fabric for her batik art, and often seeks out antique sari fabric with a story and history attached to the fabric. Indian women, such as her Great-Grandmother, have contributed sari fabric from special moments in their lives for some of Shalini's pieces.

At Beachcombers Bazaar, we offer a selection of Sahlini's silk batik scarves, silk batik pillows, and framed silk batik art. This is art to be experienced, so stop in and bring a friend! I am happy to create
custom matching glass bangle sets for the batik silk scarves to make the perfect Valentine's gift.

Yes! New Khussa Indian Shoes

You've been waiting for this haven't you?

They are finally here and they are spectacular! This grouping of shoes is better than ever!

I have a great selection of wedding shoes in whites and off-whites. Keep in mind, any of the silk white shoes can be tinted to match your dress or bridesmaids dresses.

Support WABB! (Women Against Barefoot Bridesmaids). Give your closest girls khussa to wear during the reception so they don't have to be in uncomfortable heels or worse, barefoot.

I also have some exciting new styles! Check out our open toe khussa that was inspired by request of Linda, our favorite Hawaiian!

There are 24 or less of each style made, so if you want something, get it while you can!
