Glimpse from the past

Baobab Batik has been operating since 1991. In the beginning Els, our founder and creative director, ran the business from her back yard with only a few artisans on the team.

Els and Busi have been working together since 1991.

Since 1991 Els and her team has built the foundation of what is Baobab Batik today. We want to celebrate all the energy and effort contributed by all our team members over the years. All the contributions have resulted in a sustainable and secure workplace for the Baobab Batik artisans.

In the early days Els made many one-of-a-kind pieces, like this Baobab Tree.
