Look what just arrived!
These hand-dyed Batiks from Ghana, West Africa, are part of a Fair Trade initiative. The women that create and sell these gorgeous fabrics work to support their families and the greater village they live in.
These Batiks are dyed in small batches, so while the pattern may be the same, some dye-lots may be slightly different. My suggestion: if you love it, buy more than you think you’ll need so you’re sure to have enough. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
Another interesting note; these batiks have been pre-washed and pre-shrunk so there’s no surprises when you pull it out of the washing machine. This makes them perfect for garment sewing or for your next patchwork quilt.
I have 8 luscious prints and colours to choose from:
Each one, prettier than the last.
I think I’ll be making a beach cover-up or maybe a summer skirt, or some pretty pillow covers for my patio. Hmmm… too many options for me to decide.
What would you make with them?
Till next time…
