Japonais Snow Flower

We were very excited to get hold of this new batik which reminds us of the recent snowfall and the serenity of the Japanese snow flower.  It is a designer batik by Julius Holland, renowned for their high quality wax print batiks. The weave means that the cotton is slightly heavier than most/ regular wax print batiks.

We couldn't wait until the new year to use it and share our love of this print with you - here for our lovely blog followers is a sneak preview of images before listing on our store:

We also need help deciding which image to use as our top image to draw in as many "looks" - which one do you think?

Now available:  japonais-snow-flower-set-of-two-cushion

It's All White.........

It is rare that we get such timely snowfall to coincide with the festivities. If it does come, it is usually in the new year.  With a delighted young heart, SisterBatik is revelling in the pretty blanket of white and yesterday, wrapped up warm to kick about and pirouette in the snow.  Here are some images I took to share - with love from SisterBatik xx
