Announcement   TURNAROUND TIME FOR SHIPPING is two weeks. This is because I make each batik towel, napkin, scarf, table runner, tablecloth or yardage piece in my studio in Bellingham, Washington. My linens are made using the traditional hot wax method to make the patterns. Each piece is then dyed in a small vat, soaked and set for at least 48 hours. Each piece is then boiled to remove all of the batik wax. Your fabric arrives pre washed and ironed: ready to enjoy or use in your own projects.

    Ordered napkins in September as a gift, but got notice from Margo that she was going on vacation and would not be able to deliver on time. On Oct 2, she sent a note saying she'd sent some "consolation" napkins to give as a gift in lieu of the order being late and that the real order would arrive the following week. Three weeks later, I sent two emails asking about the order status and heard nothing until this Oct 24, when a refund was issued to me. Very disappointing. She said she had a problem with the batch and offered to put me at the top of the list for a Christmas order, but I declined. I purchased from her last year and the napkins were lovely, but poor communication and missed deadlines make me leery of ordering again.

    Sometimes, things go wrong. I could not complete this order due for a variety of reasons. This order was placed right before an install for a conference, not a vacation. https://www.flickr.com/photos/margot_b_myers/albums/72157701033932851 I thought it was best to cancel the order after unsuccessful attempts to complete it. Problems were due in part to major fabric flaws that appeared during the last stage of my lengthy process: boiling. I communicated these details in the cancellation notice that Jo sadly did not see. A full refund, substitution offers, a free gift, and profuse apologies are the best I can do in these cases. Jo and I are not a good customer/maker match. However, over 2,000 customers on Etsy have been satisfied with their purchases, so please order with confidence.

About

Traditionally handcrafted batik fabrics designed to beautify everyday life

I started this work over ten years ago, in my tiny student housing kitchen. At the time, I was an MFA graduate student trying to earn extra money for paper and ink. The idea to dye floursack towels came to me as I continually failed to keep my beautiful towels white and nice to use. Printing and dyeing the fabrics seemed like the perfect way to keep these hard working tools looking nice in the process.

What began in the kitchen on weekends became full time work after I finished school and needed to maintain an active studio schedule. I continue to make prints, drawings and installations to show in galleries, museums and conferences. My line of functional batik tableware keeps my fine art studio alive. To see my other work, go to margotbmyers.com or runaway.press

Useful tools and elegant fabrics are some of the nice things in life that make ordinary tasks more appealing. I hope you find something to beautify your everyday life!

Returns and exchanges
You should be happy with your handcrafted fabrics! If there is a defect in the product or if it arrives damaged, please contact us within 2 business days of receiving your order.

Refunds for items that are not damaged or defective are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Please note that dye irregularities, slight variations in size of finished pieces, or print configurations that are not identical to the product photos are not considered defects for handprinted, hand dyed fabrics.

Refunds for CUSTOM ORDERS are subject to a 50% restocking fee.

When ordering online, please do keep in mind that exact color cannot be guaranteed, as each monitor will display differently. Please note that dye and print irregularities are not considered defects but rather inherent characteristics of individually hand dyed items. Exact sizes of my pieces, due to the handmade nature of our products, may vary by a few inches. Dimensions are approximate unless otherwise stated.
Payment
Washington state sales tax is added to your purchase at the time of checkout if your item is being shipped to a WA address.
Shipping
Our turnaround time for shipping is about 2 weeks for most products. Some orders can take longer, depending on a few factors, such as how big your order is, the season (order early for holidays!) and whether or not we have everything in stock to make your item at the moment you order. If your item will take longer than 2 weeks to ship out, we'll let you know before we begin working on it.

Your batiks arrive wrapped neatly in tissue along with business cards and care tags, but not with an invoice. If you would like to have a paper version of your receipt sent along with your order, however, just let us know.

if you need expedited services, alternate shipping methods or insurance, please contact us.
Additional policies and FAQs
You may choose pattern, product and color combinations from my shop to your specifications. please peruse my sold items as well as the items I have in stock in order to see all of the patterns and colors i have available. please feel free to contact me if you have questions about placing your custom order.

Please note that when I create a custom item, I am making something just for you. While we work closely with you to determine what you would like, each item is unique and will not be identical to anything we've produced in the past. Even time-tested dyebath recipes can produce unique results. Right now, the maximum sized of yardage we can produces is a 2 yards length.
