Vintage Javanese batik cloth

These are old Javanese sarongs. The designs are all traditional and the cloth may be more than 50 years old and therefore dyed with the old soga brown and indigo plant dyes. This gives the batik its beautiful and subtle colours. There may be the odd repair, a small stain or the occasional hole in the cloth - these are real vintage pieces.

As all of these cloths are "one offs" we can only offer ONE of each design.

We sell this batik either as a whole piece, or cut up into fat quarter sets and sample packs.

We also have some more beautiful batik fabrics on our hand drawn batik page

The cloths are approximately 105 cms wide and 2. 25 m long, and are 100% soft washed cotton.
