This was a shop on my "must see" list and I was not disappointed!! The fabrics were everything I had hoped for - tropical colours and intricate designs. We were able to meet the ladies who create the designs and learned about the process of dying batik fabric. We saw a design that they were working on while we were there and inquired about purchasing one to take home. If there had not been one downstairs in the shop for sale, we could have purchased the one they were working on and they would have had it ready for us by the time we were leaving the Island. Great customer service and friendly staff!!

Thank you so much. We're happy that you enjoyed your visit with us. We like showing how we make the batik in the traditional way, by hand.

Probably one of the finest selection of fabrics anywhere on the island - wraps, shawls, beach wear and smart dresses, skirts and tops. Probably also the most expensive on the island but well worth a look.

All of our batik is designed and made by hand here in our workshop. The sewing is done in small sewing studios around the island. We are proud of our top quality products. Thank you for your visit and comments.

We've visited St. George's, Grenada on many occasions, however, while walking along during our recent visit in Ferbruary 2017, I was looking into store windows and was drawn to Art Fabrik. The shop is lovely, containing batik items and uniquely crafted items.

Upon entering, we were greeted by friendly staff on the main level and then invited to go upstairs to observe their batik process of applying wax to the fabrik. There we met both owners and while chatting, discovered one had lived in Huntington Beach close to our home in California.

We were then invited to go outside into a courtyard area were we further observed the batik process of fabrik dying.

I considered this experience to be an "Unexpected Treat" because had I simply looked straight ahead while walking en route to our intended destination, I would have missed Art Batik. It was a pleasently refreshing time.

Looking forward to visiting again during our next trip to St. George's.

Thank you.

Was great to escape the bustle outside - and the heat. (You almost forgot how warm it was until stepped into the air-conditioned shop).

Lots of wonderful ideas for gifts - both fabric and non-fabric - and some really inspirational ideas. We bought a considerable number of items for friends back home plus a lovely magnetic brightly-painted metal fish that will now adorn a fridge in deepest-France.

Really would recommend seeking out Art Fabrik

We appreciate your recommendation. We hope the little hand painted fish magnet will brighter your winter days and bring back memories of your trip to Grenada.
