Loong (Chinese dragon) was once the symbol of Chinese emperors, however in modern times it stands for luck, happiness and power for the Chinese people. The dragon is an element of the Chinese traditional culture, and as such is a spiritual tie linking Chinese people all over the globe. You don’t have to be Chinese though to appreciate and admire this amazing banner.
If you didn’t know, a Batik is a traditional way of making designs and colouring on cloth. To explain simply, Batik is a wax resist dyeing of fabric process and is an ancient art form. Liquid wax is applied to the cloth using a drawing implement or a stamp. This wax hardens and creates the design. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired. It is a process that can take a lot of time and is certainly a skilled craft.
