Do you have a favorite brand? What is it about certain batiks - or lines of batiks - that you find more appealing than others?
The reason I'm asking, is that (being a buyer for a fabric store) I have all sorts of vendors e-mailing me pictures of their lines. And this morning I received pictures of a line of batiks that, frankly, I thought was really quite awful, compared to others I've seen.
Though, of course, we all are drawn to and appreciate different fabrics.
And even though the price on this line was excellent... the fabrics were still... well, not beautiful.
When I first started buying batiks they looked a lot alike to me... and now I'm finding that the batiks from the various makers look very different from one another indeed. But it's really hard to put into words this "change in view". Somehow I've become a bit picky... but I can't explain it.
And so I'm wondering, those of you who love batiks, have you also become very choosy? What is it that you look for?
