Caribelle Batik, St. Lucia

#142 of 172 in Tours in St. Lucia
The Company was established in 1979 to create colorful batik clothing with hand-made care and flair, and almost thirty years later; Caribelle still draws visitors from all around the world.

The batik studio and boutique are housed in 112-year-old Howelton House, the former home of Victorian doctor. Local traditions say the house is haunted, and the Caribelle operation certainly adds an air of witchcraft, with artists leaning over simmering cauldrons of wax, the floor creaking under a thick layer of wax drippings, the scent of molten bees wax drifting through open windows to blend with the pungence of cedar after a rain shower.

In a world of mass production and compromise, thank goodness for Caribelle Batik.

Wall hangings, sundresses, shirts, blouses, beach wraps, pareos, evening wear, children's wear, men's wear, scarves, batik accesories, souvenirs, bags, jewelry, paintings, home accesories, decorative items and so much more.
