Batik

BATIK
The real batiks are hand-produced by natives of Java. They outline a design on both sides of a piece of cloth and this is followed in melted wax, then the cloth is dyed indigo, the wax cracks in the dye bath, and the colour penetrates through to the cloth, thus producing the fine veins, so characteristic of these prints. The cloth is washed in hot water to remove the wax. If two colours are required, the first process is to paint in wax the part required for the second colour, and after the indigo dyeing, the cloth is cleaned of wax, and the white part is treated with the second colour, and wax as above. The part to be blue or white is first painted in wax. The colours used are blue, brown, black and yellow.
