We love batik fabric. We carry thousands of bolts here in the shop with more arriving weekly. We now have a new appreciation for batik making after watching this video.
Batiks are a wonderful group of fabrics that have a wide following here in the states. Most are made overseas and this video is produced by the Peranakan Museum Singapore showing Javanese Batiks. It is amazing to see the detail and painstaking efforts put into each and every piece.
The next time you take a look at all of the thousands of Batiks in our store perhaps you will remember that someone took the time and energy to stamp/paint each and every design! This is why no two yards are exactly the same in color, design, and pattern. Amazing.
Speaking of amazing we had an amazing response to the first block of
The not so True History of America
and we had several great comments and questions. Thank You!
We would love to answer a few of the questions:
