Made in Indonesia, these wax block printed batik cottons are made using a technique that is an ancient art form that is over 2000 years old. This technique is a type of resist printing process in which wax is applied to a design stamp which is then applied to the fabric in specific areas. When the wax hardens, the fabric is submerged in dye. The wax prevents the dye from reaching the fibers. The fabric is then boiled to remove the wax. This stamping technique is often done by hand which sometimes results in variation of the print. This is not considered a flaw but an indication of the hand applied method.
These fabrics have a stiff drape which can sometimes soften with washing. It is popular for use in garments, quilting, crafts or home decor.
