Batik Rayon - Marbled Crimson Calla Lilies
The Bali Effect batik is made from the finest quality rayon available in Southeast Asia. This fabric is especially milled with a dense thread count so that it wrinkles less, dyes beautifully and sews easily. The best quality dyes are used to ensure colourfastness wash after wash.
The sophisticated calla lily is based on a design by Diane Ericson (slightly modified for placement). This fabric coordinates with Crimson Marbled Batik Rayon.
To create this fabric, the calla lily image was first stamped on the white fabric with wax. Then the fabric was hand-manipulated and dyes applied to the fabric on long tables in the batik factory in Bali to create the marbling effect. After boiling off the wax, the fabric was over-dyed with the red you see in the calla lilies. The fabric is then pinned up to dry, resulting in small holes along the selvedges. This is not considered a defect. Occasionally there may be traces of mud or wax resist on the fabric, This comes off when you pre-wash the fabric.
Crimson marbled batik rayon is a vibrant cool red. If exact colour is important to you, always request a swatch before you place an order.
