Description

A stunning genuine, hand made Batik Sarong from Pekalongan, a famous batik centre in 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 Pekalongan on the north coast, this one is fantastic orange colour with blue. green, red, white and yellow. The front panel has a flat orange background. In very good condition.

A 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.
