The medium I work in is Batik.

Batik is an ancient process of using hot wax-resist and applying a colored dye to fabric. A tightly woven cotton or linen is often used, but I prefer to work in silk, which gives my pieces a touch of elegance that no other fabric does.

For more information on Batik, check out the Wikipedia entry.
