This is beautiful lightweight silk Imported from India in the 1970s. It was purchased at the estate of a Seattle seamstress. It is a handkerchief weight I think it would be called Habotai if it were made in China. Similar to a plain weave scarf silk.

Excellent condition. No odors or damage.

Hand made using the ancient Batik Dying process which is a technique of wax-resist and dyeing applied to whole cloth. Batik is made either by drawing the pattern of the resist wax with a spouted tool or by printing the resist with a stamp. The lightest color in the design is covered with wax, then the second color is dyed and for a third color, more wax is "drawn" onto the fabric and the process continues until the desired number of colors is reached.

If actual shipping is less by $2 or more than you paid I will refund the difference automatically via Paypal.

Feel free to request a sample swatch- the fastest way is to send me a convo. and an S.A.S.E. with a note to :

I ship orders very quickly….zippy shipper, that’s me! I need a day or two to get your item wrapped up and sent. Packages arrive within 3-5 days 99% of the time.

I do recycle boxes and shipping materials as much as possible while also making a package that's nice to receive.

For international shipping convenience, I have the cost listed in the listing. Since it's sometimes hard to make the exact estimate, I refund any shipping charges that are $2 or more less than what you paid. For example, if you paid $10 shipping and the actual shipping turns out to be $7.50, I refund you $2.50.
