Featured Friday Fabric - Batik!

This week I wanted to show off this pretty, pretty cotton batik.  I never luck out and find batiks!  This one I particularly love with a bird interspersed throughout the highly detailed pattern.
If you are not familiar with batik fabric, most originates from Indonesia and it is created from a wax-resist dye process -- typically done by hand.  That's part of the reasoning that a real batik can be hard to find and a little pricey.  This one actually still had a tag from Indonesia attached to the fabric - with the name LOJITEX; I can't find it as a source which might make this pretty fabric all the more rare.
Look, even the selvage is decorative!  If you'd like a yard of this for your very own - please visit right here.
