You get the spirit of the Bahamas - no a big fancy place a working factory and small outlet. Fun to go to.

It was fun to make our own fabric pattern, and purchase some clothing made out of the colorful fabric.

“a story of local resilience”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

this local textile industry started out as a small business for local single mothers in the 70's. It has expanded to be recognized as a national symbol of the Bahamas, and has since downsized again to retain authenticity. You can even create your own Batik fabric here!

“local batik”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

North Andros is home to the Androsia batik factory and must see on a trip to this island. The colors are amazing and the designs are island inspired. Take the tour and be sure to check out the gift shop as you won't want to leave without a shirt, dress or tablecloth!
