We were so excited about the batiks we ordered for the fall season. They started coming in during August and we just received the last one this week! When we buy batiks, we try hard to go for something a little different from the typical batik motifs and colors. So many people use cotton batiks for quilting and home dec, we like our rayon batiks to have a different flavor. It’s all about color and the fun part for us to see the final product. These fabrics were order last April and the final product is often a bit different than we anticipated…almost always good different. Sometimes the colors are more muted than the sample we saw due to the weather on the day they were dyed. Sunny days yield brighter colors than cloudy days. Sometimes there are surprise colors in the base that weren’t visible on the sample we saw—this is so much fun! Then there are the custom orders where we have chosen the print and the color way but have not seen the final product. Candy and I spend several hours every six months choosing the offerings for the next shipment. We were very satisfied with the results this time and hope our customers will be too!
