Description

A rare and gorgeous, genuine, hand made Batik Sarong from Pekalongan, a famour 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 has a beige striped background with multi-coloured floral motifs. The front panel is diagonally blue and beige stripes with with teh same floral motifs. 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 105cm high by 180cm circumference (if opened out).

A superb example of Indonesian batik. Rare, classic and beautiful.
