A gorgeous fully hand made Batik from Pekalongan in Java.
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.
This one is a
nice old soft cotton with a brown background and a beautiful floral and bird pattern in red, green, blue, purple and white. In good condition with
some signs of usage.
A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 104cm high by 216cm long.
