In Gambia it is extremely popular to batik fabric. In the Batik factory (in Serekunda or in Bakau) you can see how these fabrics are created and modified. By using natural paints and candle wax they make all kinds of patterns on the fabric. The substances are used for table cloths, wall hangings and clothing.
