Beautiful, genuine, hand made Batik from Java. This is a "Kombinasion"
batik, where part is done by a Cap or Stem, an intricate large copper
stamp used to repeatedly apply wax to the cloth., while some is made by
"kanting" (pouring) the wax onto the material. It is not made by
mechanically printing onto the cotton.
From Central Java, most
likely Yogyakarta, this one is a nice old soft cotton with a beautifully
faded multi-coloured pattern. In good condition.
A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 104cm high by 236cm long.
