Our Island Tour (with ROYSTON TOURS) started in St. Kitts's capital, BASSETERRE and Royston drove us to the Wingfield Estate and we then stopped at Romney Manor for a visit at Caribelle Batik. Thumbs up!

Once owned by Sam Jefferson II, the great great great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson (3rd President of U.S.A.) the great house was renamed Romney Manor following its acquisition in the early 17th century by the Earl of Romney.
In 1834 contrary to the instructions of the British Parliament, Lord Romney declared his slaves free men. Romney Estate therefore became the first estate in St.Kitts to emancipate their slaves.

Caribelle produced its first batik in 1974. From humble beginnings, it is fair to say that Caribelle has become the Caribbean's most sought after batik product.
Caribelle Batik uses many quality fabrics including the exclusive Sea Island Cotton. Their products last a lifetime.
Using the ancient Indonesian methods of resisting dye with wax, Caribelle creates the many designs for which they have become associated.
