Description

A beautiful, old, hand made Batik from Java. Tuli is the Indonesian word used to describe a batik that is totally handmade by "kanting" (pouring) the wax onto the material. It is not made by stamp or by mechanically printing onto the material. This is the traditional and most labour intensive way of making a batik.

From Central Java, this one is a nice old soft cotton with a cream/beige background and the classic parang motif in maroon. All natural dyes and in very good condition.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 103cm high by 253cm long.

A superb example of a classic Indonesian batik.
