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)
