Batik is a traditional way of making designs and colouring on cloth. Explained 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 artist to selectively colour areas by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating the process if multiple colours are required. It is a timely process and a skilled craft.
