Tools and materials for creating the ancient crafts of Batik and Shibori,
including a choice of waxes and resists, tjantings, and dissolvable yarn for creating
Shibori or tie-dye.
The thermostatically controlled Wax Melting Pot compliments the
range of Batik products and offers a safer option than melting
batik wax on the hob. The selection of stretcher frames provide
the perfect tool for suspending taut fabric while you are
working on your Batik designs, and the fine pins have been
designed not to mark the fabric.
We have a selection of fabrics including silk and finely woven
Javanese cotton which have the ideal surface for fine Batik work
and Shibori designs. The selection of indigo dyes include
natural indigo, synthetic indigo and Jacquard Pre-reduced
indigo, and the Procion MX cold water dyes include the Jacquard
Procion MX colours and the Fibrecrafts Procion MX colours.
The water soluble yarn will make light work of Shibori projects.
It is 90 denier so will not leave marks on the fabric
and dissolves fully in water at 70°C.
