We have been waiting on these fabrics for months and they have finally arrived. These new batiks from Kate Spain are gorgeous. She took designs from some of her previously collections and worked with artisans in Indonesia to reinterpret them into batiks.
Batik fabrics have a special look to them; a very hand-crafted look due to the nature in which they were made. The process for making true batik fabric is different than all the other fabrics we typically get. You will notice the variations in color, the imperfections of the fabric but this all lends to the true hand-crafted quality of the fabric itself. We love these and really struggled with wanting to keep them all for ourselves. No, seriously .. it was tough.
I’m currently working on making a new version of the Chubby Charmer bag using the Latitude charm pack. It is going to be so pretty when done. Expect this to be a class coming up shortly …
This collection has already made it to one of our all-time favorite fabric collections list. You might want to grab some before we take it all home. 🙂
