Batiks are the snowflakes of the quilting cotton family. Every single one is truly unique. Batik is basically the most prestigious form of tie dye and really takes a true craftsman to make this fabric. Batiks are made from having someone paint or drip hot wax on to a fabric to create a resist when you dye it. This is called resist dying, and batik is one of the oldest forms of this method. When the wax cracks during the dying process it creates a look that it truly unique. The beautiful thing about batiks is that no two bolts of the same fabric will ever be identical. It is a really amazing process. We here at Harts seek out the most beautiful and highest quality batiks fabric we can find. Since we are located in Santa Cruz Ca, batiks are always in season and we are always ready to share a little of our endless summer with you!
