Located in Howelton House this is the retail outlet for Caribelle Batik, which is made on site together with other ventures. It's worth a visit for the very good shop, but stop and take in the excellent views with a rum punch from the bar!

Our dress lengths are $65usd. One also has the option of getting the fat quarter pack which has the total of the same 2-yard lengths, but cut into quarters with 5 colour options which are ideal for quilters.
