Fodor's Review

The Androsia Batik Works Factory in Andros Town is home to the famous Androsia batik that has been declared the official fabric of the Bahamas. Small Hope Bay Lodge’s Birch family established it in 1973 to boost employment in Andros. The brightly colored hand-dyed cotton batik has designs inspired by Andros’s flora, fauna, and culture. You can prearrange a batik lesson ($25) and make your own design on a choice of fabric, garment, or bag. Self-tours are free. The unique brand is seen and sold throughout the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and online. The outlet store (with different opening times) offers bargains on shirts, skirts, wraps, fabric, jewelry, books, crafts, and souvenirs.
