A rare and gorgeous, genuine, hand made Batik Sarong from Pekalongan, a famous batik centre in Java.
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 Pekalongan on the north coast, this one is a combination of beautiful shades of red and green. In very good condition.
Sarong is made by taking a long piece of batik and sewing the two short
edges together to form a tube. Mostly made for use by women. This one
is 104cm high by 184cm circumference (if opened out).
A superb example of Indonesian batik. An absolute beauty.
