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 Kudus in Java, this one has a beige background The main part of the batik has a ceplok background in beige with purple white and beige flowers while the front panel is the same colour combination but with a stunning Van Zuylen style floral bouquet. 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 106cm high by 188cm circumference (if opened out).

A superb example of Indonesian batik. Rare, classic and beautiful from one of the great Batik centres in the world.
