Androsia Hand Made Batik Factory

Our world-famous batik fabric and garment manufacturing factory is located near the Andros Lighthouse and has been in business since 1973. It is the center of production for Androsia, the brightly colored authentic Bahamian hand-dyed cotton fabric, with designs inspired by elements found in the island's environment and Bahamian culture. Our company's name, found on each yard of fabric, represents the Island of Andros and its people, known as Androsians.

Batik lessons are offered (with prior arrangement), where visitors can tour the factory, watch the artisans as they wax, cut and dye these beautifully colored fabrics, and make a two-yard piece of batik to take home. Self-guided tours are available Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. An outlet store on the premises offers visitors great bargains on Androsia garments, fabric, jewelry, books, craft items, baskets, carvings, souvenirs, and more! The fabric can also be purchased throughout The Islands of The Bahamas.
