A Pattern is applied in hot wax onto a piece of cloth, usually cotton. When the cloth is later dyed, those parts which have been treated with wax will not take up the dye: when the wax is removed a pattern of white lines will be left. This process can be repeated with a number of subsequent waxings, and dye baths, leaving a complex pattern of motifs in a variety of colors. How long this method of decorating cloth has been recorded in many countries throughout the world. Fragments of fabric decorated with resist techniques have been found in tombs in China dating back to the sixth century and by the eigth century the wax resist techniques seems to have spread to Japan.

Testimonials:“A recent visit to Bali, Indonesia with Go Eat Give educated and enabled me to connect across the world. For example, learning about Bali Children’s Project to support programs like sponsoring village children for schooling, HIV prevention programs, and other programs. Go Eat Give is a superb platform that will help you change the world, one smiling child or adult at a time. Folks, this is real; I have witnessed the impact first hand. Go Eat Give was an eye opener to our group – we are now more informed and involved in changing the world – our world. Join us, and have some fun putting a smile on people’s faces while changing their lives! ~ Zubin Mogul (September 2015) “I recently had the opportunity to go to Bali, Indonesia with Go Eat Give. To say that this trip was life changing is an understatement. It included a stay at one of the most beautiful resorts, dining at the finest restaurants, and visiting the top tourist attractions in our area. Our group also had inspirational yoga classes twice a day with Jason Anderson. However, what impacted me the most was volunteering at a school with the Bali Children’s Project. We had sessions for the children that included Yoga classes, English Classes, and Arts and Crafts. BCP is a wonderful organization that does great things for it’s community and it was an honor to be a part of their mission.” ~ Sheronda Campbell (September 2015) “I had the most wonderful volunteer experience in Bali through Go Eat Give. Not only were we able to help educate children in the poorest of villages, but also got to experience true Balinese culture. We had the most wonderful food, accommodations, and experiences that will stay with me forever. In addition, lifelong friendships were made. Bali is a country of exquisite people, landscape, and utter beauty. All in all, priceless.” ~ Veena Wulfekuhle (April 2013) “Traveling to Bali with Go Eat Give was an experience of a lifetime. The people, places and experiences I encountered were unlike any travel experience I’ve had before. The activities were well-rounded and allowed you to gain true insight of local life in Bali.” ~ Lindsay Masters (April 2013)
