Description

A beautiful, genuine, 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, most likely Yogyakarta, this one is a nice old soft cotton with a white background and lovely shades of blue, purple and black floral motif. All natural dyes and in good condition apart from one medium hole on the border.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 103cm high by 235cm long.

A superb example of Indonesian batik.
