Description

A gorgeous fully handmade Indonesian batik sarong from Magelang in 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 Magelang on Central Java, this one has a purple background with multi-coloured floral motifs. In very good condition.

A Sarong is made by taking a long piece of batik and sewing the two short edges together to form a tube. Mostly made for use by women. This one is 104cm high by 182cm circumference (if opened out).

A superb example of Indonesian batik. Rare, classic and beautiful.
