African Hand Dyed Batik Dapple by Betta

Price per ½ metre. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Part of our latest range of hand-dyed African fabrics from The Gambia, these amazing textiles are made by talented Batik artists who use natural dyes for their creations. No two fabrics are the same and they are just a work of art!

This fabric, with it's earthy tones, takes me to the woodlands where dappled light filters through the trees! It's good substantial cotton suitable for clothing and decor and will soften quite a bit when washed and handled. 

A little bit about the Batik:
Batik is wax applied to the fabric before the dying process, where dye cannot penetrate the waxed area the fabric keeps it's original colour. and where there is no wax, the dye colours the fabric. The wax can be applied with many different tools, from foam rubber to wooden stamps and brushes. Some wax is dripped from a height and in many layers, with dip dyes in between - can you imagine the work?!

A little bit about crispness:
Feeling crisp at first, the fabric will go quite soft when washed. If you want to keep it crisp, just don't wash it!

100% cotton
