We have about 70 tjaps left from our holiday shipment of 400, most of which are really nice. There are at least a couple left on every page, so scroll around. Look for the green checks to see what is still available. They make really great gifts too, for crafters as well as collectors, and we still have some beauties! Tjaps are getting harder and harder to find. We have a few more traditional Indonesian designs, some modern designs, also some simple less expensive designs and geometrics. There are some great repeating patterns for surface design, and a bunch of really nice borders! Our guy in Indonesia is still finding those fantastic florals. Watch for mirror images! Used to stamp opposite each other, or with thicker fabric, to stamp the back side.We always feel extremely fortunate whenever we get these, because Batik is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, so the used tjaps are getting more scarce. Scavenger types even try to grab them up to melt down for the copper content, gasp.
**If you want to hear about future shipments as soon as they come in, do send us an email, just once, to firstname.lastname@example.org for notification the instant they go up for sale. We are keeping that list on going, so no need to email it more than once. We set up this preferential tjap email list because our newsletter list takes awhile to go out, and the folks who get their newsletter later often find most of the tjaps are sold by the time they get to them. Whenever we get new shipments, we will first email the folks on this list, then if there are some left, we will notify folks who have opted in for our monthly e-newsletter to sell the rest. If you do not already get our monthly e-newsletter and would like to join our mailing list, follow this link and enter your email address. We also post the announcement on Dharma's Facebook page the day they go up for sale, so this is also a good way to get notification.
**Remember when you order: Because these are so popular, if several folks order the same one at the same time, it may go on your order, but the order that was finished and sent first will get it, as these are first come, first served. Simply putting them in your shopping cart does not reserve them! You can write us a note on your order with alternatives in case you don't get your first selection(s) or a note for us to call you if one is out of stock. Otherwise we will just ship the ones on your order that we do have. Remember, these collectables are old, used and not in perfect condition. To have new ones made at the level of complexity of some of these can cost $300 or more! Please, no returns on these unique items.
