A stunning range of distinctive colours and designs, hand-printed in a unique cottage industry by specialist craftsmen who have been passing their skills down for generations.
As these beautiful fabrics are hand printed there may be some loose dye on the surface of the fabric and some irregularities will occur as an inevitable and unique feature of the hand printing process.
Batik is a type of resist printing process in which wax is applied to the fabric in specific areas. When the wax hardens, the fabric is submerged in dye. The wax prevents the dye from reaching the fibers. The fabric is then boiled to remove the wax. This fabric-dyeing method makes cotton look crackled.
