I decided to do some research so that I am learning about batik fabric–its history and how these fabrics are made today. I’m sharing a few links that I thought might be useful to my readers as I start my journey as an Ambassador.
Island Batik Company
First, here is some background about Island Batik and how they partner with local artisans to produce the fabric you will see me using this year. CLICK HERE FOR INFO ON ISLAND BATIK!
Also, here’s the link to the store locator so you can buy these fabrics at your local quilt shop.
DISCLOSURE: Please note that I do not receive any financial compensation from Island Batik for being an Ambassador. The company will send me free fabric to use each month in my projects. Of course, I will share my ‘leftovers’ in giveaways later this year. I promise that I’ll honestly share my experience using these fabrics in my modern quilt designs.
Meet an Island Batik Ambassador!
Each month, I’ll post links to the other Ambassadors and their projects. This month, I want you to meet an Ambassador from Greece. Mania, one of the 2018 Island Batik Ambassadors, has published a really lovely post about her love of batiks and their history. What’s fun is that Mania is from Greece–we are an international group!! Check it out here.

Here’s an interesting video showing a traditional process for making batik fabric.
