What is “batik”?
Batik is a technique for dying fabric using wax to create patterns. It is currently really popular in the quilting community because of the beautiful patterns and vibrant colours. The batiks sold by Fabrics From Earth are all modern designs with modern bright colours. For more information see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batik
Will my fabrics look exactly like the pictures?
Due to the way the fabric is dyed, there will always be great variation in colours. We do our best to ensure that the pictures used to advertise the fabric are good representations of the colours and patterns. We also cannot control for all the variations in device screens; for optimal viewing we recommend using Apple devices.
Do I need to pre-wash the fabric?
We strongly recommend that you wash the fabric before you use it. Due to the dying process, sometimes some wax may be stuck to the fabric. Also, by pre-washing the fabric you ensure that the colours won’t run.
Can I cancel my order?
All orders cancelled after 48 hours are subject to a $10 administration fee whether or not your order has shipped. If you order has shipped, you (the buyer) will also be responsible for actual return shipping charges.
What if I’m unhappy with my fabric?
We have a 100% Happiness policy. If for any reason you are not completely happy with your fabric, please contact us within 60 days to arrange a return for a full refund (excluding postage).
