44" wide 100% cotton quilting weight BATIK fabric by Kaffe Fassett for Free Spirit Fabric. This fabric is from Kaffe Fassett's exciting new "Artisan" collection. This is the first time that Kaffe has released 3 different substrates in tandem with the intention that quilting weight cottons, wovens, and batiks be mixed and matched together. And for batik lovers, it's important to note that this is the first time ever that this beloved designer has created a line of batik fabrics. Just fabulous!
According to Free Spirit Fabrics, "upon arriving in England in 1960, Kaffe was struck by the flare of colorful fashions and the use of two-color bold prints. Here, "Artisan" echoes the simplicity, boldness and high colors of this glorious time, playing upon a Bohemian lifestyle of mixing textures, designs and colors. Composed of premium 100% cotton, hand-dyed batik, provocative yarn-dyed woven and trendy Ikat fabrics, "Artisan" speaks to a time when hand creation included dedication, appreciation, skill and love of the craft--in total, a bold fusion of color certain to broaden the creative scope of prolific makers, spanning beyond traditional quilting."
