Description

An interesting new Batik made the old way, 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.

This batik has unusual dark colours - dark brown, plum and dark green, It is new and on strong cotton and I think with use, it will age beautifully into a great looking batik.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 110cm high by 245cm long.

A superb example of Indonesian batik.
