“Hi there, I just received my parcel now, and I am DELIGHTED with it.  This is the absolute first time I have ever ordered fabric online – it’s always seemed a bit risky to me, not knowing if the colors would actually be how they appear on the screen. I am just thrilled with the rayon batik and can’t wait to make a gorgeous shirt with your pattern. Thanks again, Julie

“Thanks for your fast service and great fabrics. –Joanne”

“Thank you – really, really appreciate everything you have done for me.  –Lizzie”

“Thank you so very much. I really appreciate this, and will tell other folks how efficient you are 🙂! – Dianne”

About Indonesian Batiks Owner and Founder

IMG_9658 Vicki Hawkinson

After college I spent a few years traveling around Asia and South East Asia. While visiting Indonesia I fell in love with the people, art, and culture of the region. It was here in Indonesia where I took my first Batik class in 1982. I purchased several Batik Art Paintings and returned to the US to sell at street fairs. I knew I wanted Indonesia to be part of my life forever, and so in 1984 my company Indonesian Batiks was launched.

Fast forward 32 years and now I run an online wholesale/ retail business that offers more than 700 different Batik Art Paintings, 1000’s of yards of Batik Fabrics in Cotton, Rayon, and Knit, as well as numerous garment and quilting patterns. Batik is my passion and staying connected with friends in Indonesia brings me great joy in my life.
