Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to a piece of cloth such as Chiffon, Silk Jacquard, Cotton, Silk Crepe, Silk Rayon, etc..

Batik designs are first sketched by pencil, followed by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting. It allows for fine detailing and control. The liquid wax is collected in a copper cup and then allowed to run down the narrow spout, which is directed by hand, to follow design lines.

The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to color selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired.

Only locally sourced grown leaves, flowers, fruits and bark are used to produce dye. These plant products will be soaked, boiled, and then strained and the resulting liquid used as natural dye.
