Batik fabric is the snowflake of quilting cottons - every batik fabric is truly unique. We maintain a wide selection of batiks from brands and designers such as Robert Kaufman, Alison Glass, Timeless Treasures, and more. Batik fabric
is essentially the most prestigious form of tie dye and it takes a true craftsman to make this material. Batik is made by painting or dripping hot wax onto the fabric to create a resistant barrier when it is dyed. 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 batik quilting fabrics is that no two bolts of the same fabric will ever be identical. It is an amazing process and we here at Harts seek out the most beautiful and highest quality batik fabrics we can find. Since we are located in Santa Cruz, batiks are always in season and we are always ready to share a little of our endless summer with you. Order with confidence with our easy, no hassle returns policy.
