Handcrafted by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics
Handcrafted by Alison Glass was released late last year and was followed more recently by a second and collection - Handcrafted 2 - which represents a continuation of an overall look that is unique.
Handcrafted 2 by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics
Both collections are made entirely by hand (a process unique to Andover) and are a new interpretation of the ancient wax resist fabric dying art form (batik). It is made in Indonesia by people skilled with this technique. Many hands have gone into the making of this hand stamped and hand dyed cloth, and it is beautiful. The fabric is a slightly lighter than quilting cotton, and although technically there is a a right side, they are reversible.
Admittedly these two collections will push me to think and work outside of my comfort zone, and it has taken some time to add these to my stash. However the bright, modern colors, and clever interpretation of a style of fabrics that I would otherwise avoid has completely drawn me in. I am looking forward to working with these designs.
