These one-of-a-kind Artisan Batiks are produced on the island of Java in Indonesia by skilled dye masters. Each yard of these sumptuous fabrics is unique. The fabric is hand-stamped and then hand-painted multiple times, with many different pairs of hands working on every yard. Most of the work is done outside, so the weather greatly influences the results. Due to this specialized hand-process, there is a consistency to color and pattern, while maintaining subtle color variations that are so important to this traditional technique.
100% combed cotton fabric. Machine wash cold, no bleach, wash dark colors separately, tumble dry low, remove promptly.
Hand made in Indonesia.
