Most of the 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 are some inconsistencies to the colors and pattern, while maintaining subtle color variations that are so important to this traditional technique.
The cotton batik fabrics are designed in America by designers that include Michael Miller and Robert Kaufman.
- As many fabrics and all our fillings, buckwheat, lavender and flaxseed are all sourced in the United States. That includes zippers and thread which are purchased less than 100 miles from here in North-East Pennsylvania in New York at https://www.wawak.com/
