Batik Stretching

Batik is a method originally used in Java of producing coloured designs on textiles by dyeing them, having first applied wax to the parts to be left un-dyed. It is now used throughout the world both on pieces of art and clothing. Batik stretching is the same technique used for canvas stretching and really enhances the artwork ready for hanging.

Tapestry Stretching

Tapestry work can be displayed framed or stretched. For more expensive items, we recommend framing as this provides protection from the environment. However, stretching is suitable for many, often home produced work.

As opposed to framing when the work is under glass, Batik and Tapestry stretching allows the detail texture of the work to be seen more clearly.

A further alternative is to have the work stretched and then framed without glass.
