Plain Fabrics

+44 (0)1588 638712

Plain fabrics ideal for batiking, tie dye, dyeing and printing techniques.

Perfectly smooth white cotton (called "Primissima") from Java is tailor made for batik.

The hand woven hemp is great for the start of a stitching or dyeing project. If you would like a wide smooth, machine woven hemp fabric, you can find it on our Hemp Fabric page

And we now have four different hemmed and fringed scarves ideal for dyeing, shibori, batik or printing. These are in pure cotton, a cotton and linen mix and natural, unbleached hemp, which I was very pleased to find. The hems are all sewn in a natural (non synthetic) thread.
