Beautiful Batik

March 24, 2015

You see it all over the Bahamas, beautiful, brightly colored batik fabrics fashioned into everything from sundresses to shorts to swim trunks. Would you believe it's made right on Andros? Inspired by the natural beauty of the Bahamas, Androsia was founded in 1973 to create meaningful employment for islanders while highlighting the beauty of the Bahamas through color and design. More than 40 years later, their lines of women's, men's and children's batik clothing are seen all over the Bahamas. Destined to be a treasured souvenir by family and friends, these colorful hand-dyed beauties can be found not far from Kamalame Cay at the Androsia Outlet Store at Fresh Creek and, on nearby Nassau, at Bahama Sol shops at Paradise Island Shopping Plaza, downtown and the airport. Just one more reason to love our island paradise!
