Androsia Hand Made Batik Factory has been a local family business on Andros since it started on the beach in the late 1960s. The colorful fabrics, with patterns inspired by the natural beauty of the Bahamas, are hand created using a technique called batik, in which designs are applied to the cloth with wax before the cloth is dyed. Androsia’s fabrics have become an iconic part of Andros, and visitors to the factory can not only watch the artisans at work on a self-guided tour, but also arrange batik lessons. A small store offers batik fabrics by the yard, along with clothes, jewelry and other handicrafts.
Venture out to the Androsia Batik Works and put your hands on some fantastic hand-crafted Bahamian textiles. A Bahamian institution since 1973, Androsia crafts some of the finest beachwear on the islands.
