To cut a long story short I was encouraged by such helpful communication (emails with Mary Scott in USA) that I purchased these absolutely deliciously gorgeous and beautiful handcrafted batiks via the web.
They are such a work of art, created by real artisans with a love of what they create.
These fabrics, beside making my heart-strings sing, represent excellent value too. I am itching to include these in my art-quilts, so you will see these fabrics in future posts of my work.
I encourage you to go to www.boldoverbatiks.com and learn about this innovative venture with small batik cottage artists in Malaysia. I take my hat off to them for their ability to produce such lovely pieces whilst ensuring their craft continues to live on within their culture.
You will be inspired!
