Baobab Batik is 25 years old!

Els started Baobab Batik in 1991. Since then she has been working with the team to build the sustainable social enterprise we are today. We employ 35 women full time, each of them specializing in their field of the production or within our sales team.

We have many plans for this year, as we believe 25 years in business should be celebrated! And we will celebrate it baobab-style, by focusing on our core values of having fun, being thought leaders and innovators and by working together as a team.

Our celebration will be in September 2016. And leading up to the event we will show you more and more of what we have planned. Here comes the first sneak-peak of the preparations :)

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.
