Batik sarees have an interesting past and making procedure. Traditionally, they are known to be made in countries like Indonesia, which is the best known country to make beautiful batik. Their designs are diverse, with the inclusion of a range of cultures and influenced by the local tradition. Their workmanship and hard work is reflected in the batik.

How are They Made?

They use a technique of wax-resist dyeing to a whole cloth. Sometimes, their patterns are made by drawing dots and lines along the resist. This is achieved by using a pouted tool called canting. Sometimes, the resist is also patterned using copper stamps that are called caps. What then happens is that, the wax that has been applied on the resist dyes. From this, the artisan can now colour the cloth as per his choice by soaking the cloth in a colour. He/she then removes the wax with the help of boiling water. In case a multi coloured cloth is needed, the artisan further dips it and water and repeats the process all over.

Batik, wax resist dyeing of fabric is as old as the 4th century and was in existence in Egypt. They were used to wrap the mummies. This technique was also used by the Chinese, Indians and Japanese. However, the entire development of Batik art is mostly in the Java island of Indonesia.
