Description

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 gorgeous batik in strong maroon, green and blue and a grey and white background. All natural dyes and in very good condition.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 104cm high by 204cm long.

A superb example of Indonesian batik.
