Batik Fabric produced especially for Quilt Sandwich

We are really excited - we have placed our next order for some more extra wide batik fabric.

This is being specially produced for us in Java using traditional methods. We have ordered 30 new designs / colours to add to our existing QS Batik range of 20 designs.

Here are some photos showing the actual fabric in production.

This really interesting video shows the full production method by this factory.

The Batik Process

When all our fabrics are ready, they will leave the factory in Java and head to the UK via container ship and this will journey will take around 5 to 6 weeks.

The new fabrics will certainly be here in time for Festival of Quilts in August and will be in our on line shop here  as soon as they arrive.Quilt Sandwich has the largest range of extra wide fabric / Quilt backs in the UK.
