AVFKW x Kebon Indah Collective - The Picture Window Quilt Kit

Bring the beauty of nature and the expert artistry of Batik Tulis Kebon Indah closer with our new Picture Window Quilt Kit. Sarah handcrafted this wonderful quilt using naturally dyed batik, natural linen, and naturally dyed sashiko thread.

Each piece of our naturally dyed batik from Java is so incredibly intricate and unique, one could spend a long time looking at the patterns and drawings created by the layers of wax and dye. There is already so much pattern, color, and story in each design that makes a wonderful quilt top for a wholecloth quilt, allowing the entire design to be seen.

The batik fabric is naturally-dyed by a women's collective in Java, Indonesia, named Batik Tulis Kebon Indah. Each pattern is hand-drawn onto the fabric with a tool called a canting and hot wax. The fabric is then dyed. The steps of applying wax and dyeing are repeated approximately 12-20 times before the wax is finally removed from the fabric, completing the process, and revealing the magical swirling layers of line and color.
