Baobab Batik is a social enterprise based in Swaziland, Southern Africa, founded by Els Hooft in 1991. She wished to follow her passion of creating batiks, as well as offering sustainable work opportunities for women. Since then Baobab Batik has evolved into a thriving enterprise employing 35 artisans full time. Baobab follows the core values of transparency, accountability, and TEAM. Team stands for Together Everyone Achieves More, which is their key to success. They also believe every person needs a safe space where we can share stories, laugh together, and care for each other. Baobab's vision is to be a leading example, in Swaziland and beyond, of a social enterprise using thought leadership and innovation to empower women and develop the batik art form.

Super comfortable leggings. From the dscription, I expected these to be a little thicker for winter wear. With winter wind, you will feel the chill; however, indoors they are fine. I look forward to wearing again when it warms up. I love the colors and design [I purchased the stained glass pattern]. Definately check the sizing chart to determine your size. However, I tend to wear medium and purchased a medium and it fit. I am 5'0", 30" waist. They stay in shape after a machine wash and dry.

I love my leggings but really glad I bought a size bigger. I'm a medium but got large as I hate tight waistbands. I love the patterns.

Very light weight. Nice fit and stretch, which is good for me because I'm very long legged and thin.
