Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This stunning quilt was made by Kendy, in a variety of Batik Fabrics. "Batik fabric is a unique material in which wax is applied to certain areas of the fabric. Once the wax hardens, the fabric is submerged in a beautiful dye, and the wax actually prevents the fibers from absorbing it! After being properly submerged, the batik print is then boiled to remove the wax."
Kendy is 24 years old and she has three children who are 4,3, and 1. She and her husband Elmer also take care of 2 of Kendy's sisters and a brother. Her sisters are 12, and 10 and her brother is 8-years-old. Right now Kendy is trying to save enough money to get a new roof on her house. With the tropical weather in San Pedro Sula there is a lot of rain and she would like to get a new roof to stop the leaking. She is so grateful to work for One Common Thread.
