We get our cotton from Java where it is specially made for batik. This means that it is ready prepared for dyeing, the wax penetrates easily, it absorbs dye beautifully and it can take a very hot wash with safety.
Primissima is the highest grade of cotton and is used for very fine batik - a high thread count and very smooth surface. Width: 42 inches (105 cms)
Berkolin is used to make pictures. It is a little thicker and is specially produced to stretch onto frames for picture making. Width: 35 inches (90 cms)
Hemp hand woven natural hemp made by hill tribe women on narrow looms so every length is unique. Width: approximately 14 inches (35 cms)
Rayon is also a natural fabric (it's made from plant fibres!) which has a good drape and is suitable for sarongs, skirts, scarves etc. Width 44 inches (110 cms)
