What is Batik?

  • Batik: is not easy and involves a very labour-intensive and complex process with many days of hard work until the finished article is ready.
  • Indonesia: is where many believe to be the origin of Batik
  • Simply: batik is an amazing and ancient method of colour dyeing
  • Historically: batik has been around for many hundreds of years.
  • Technically: batik is the process of applying dyes to porous surfaces.
  • Aesthetically: batik produces some of the most beautiful art in the world.
  • The Batik Process: the first step in the Batik process is to design a pattern. The pattern is then stenciled with a special tool called a "Tulis" onto our material, which is normally 100% rayon because of itīs excellent properties. Hot wax is then placed in specific areas on the fabric using a "Canting" tool. The wax acts like a barrier to the colour dyes, which allows one colour to remain while the remaining non-waxed fabric absorbs the new colour dye. The wax is then removed by soaking the fabric in hot water. The batik process of dyeing and waxing is repeated several times until all the required colours and patterns are obtained leaving you with a beautiful and intricate batiked work of art. Occasionally you will find some wax deposits have remained on the Batik fabric you have purchased. These are easily removed in a cool water hand wash.
