How we make Batik clothing

The art and craft of Batik is a method of using wax and dye to decorate clothing.

Batik is a traditional method that originates from Java in Indonesia.

Hot wax is used to block out areas on the fabric when the cloth is dyed. These areas resist the dye and remain the original color.

After the dye is complete the wax is removed in a bath of hot water. The cloth may be dyed several times to create artistic designs.
