The creation of batiks is an ancient art that has been passed down through generations of artisans. Banyan Batiks are handmade by the local artisans of Indonesia who take pride in their culture and leading expertise in batiks.
The picture of this quilt does not do it justice as the lighter colors are not quite accurate. Pay close attention to the sample block shown in picture 2 and the actual fabrics shown in pictures 3 thru 8 for fabric color accuracy. I will change out the main photo once I have my quilt completed assuming we don’t sell out before I get it made.
100% cotton batik fabric. Machine wash cold water, delicate dry cycle, use cool iron.
