Description

A beautiful but damaged, 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 light beige background and parang motif in brown and blue. All natural dyes and in very good condition apart from one repaired hole. Both sides of the hole are shown in the photos. Without the holes this is museum quality, 100% traditional piece - handmade, natural dyes, classic design, old.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 105cm high by 222cm long.

A superb example of Indonesian batik.
