    It looks like a batik -- they never have information on the selvage.

    WOW! I would have picked this up too. I assume there is NO way to contact the vendor you bought it from. I love it. Does it feel like a batik?? There are so many of them out there now a days. Hopefully someone will know how to do a search. If not, I would press the fabric, take another picture and start sending it out via e-mail to the major companies such as Hoffman, Robert Kaufman or South Seas Import. Good Luck !!

    I found it, thanks to BellaBoo, I searched for snake skin batik, and found my fabric, Hoffman, pine seeds, colorway is breeze! It is a retired print, I guess that is why I didn't find it on the website. Thanks to everyone!

    When I needed a retired batik I think I searched to the ends of the internet. I finally went to the LQS where I originally bought it and asked what brands of batiks they carried. I then searched all of the manufacturers websites until I found the name of the fabric. Then I searched and searched for it. It took months. I finally found it on ebay. Good luck.

    I wish I could help you, but I've never seen it before. It's beautiful - maybe it's a batik. Good luck.

    I have bought fabric at Marshall's Dry Goods in Batesville, AR with the same colors in it. If memory serves me, the piece I bought was a different print. You may want to check out their website.

    Fabric.com and EQuilter.com have great websites to peruse their batiks by color. that's where I would take a peek.
