Batik Rayon Challis - Forest Pond
Shades of teal, pink and yellow in a leafy batik design.
Rayon Challis (say "shall-EE") is one of our fave fabrics. It's soft and drapey like Silk Crepe, but has all the comfort and washability properties of cotton.
They're ideal for tops, dresses, skirts and pants. Basically, they're perfect for anything that requires the drape and softness you think of when you think of silk.
They're particularly great for making scarves and ponchos, or anything where you will see the reverse of the fabric. Most printed fabrics only have the print on one side of the fabric. But because of the batik process, both sides of the fabric have taken the dyes. They will be slightly different, but they're both beautiful.
