Description

Beautiful, genuine, hand made Batik from Java. This is a "Kombinasion" (combination) 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 ceplok background pattern (by stamp) with birds and floral motifs (kanting) in beige, black, dark blue and white. 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 233cm long.

A superb example of Indonesian batik.
