Description

A lovely fully hand made Batik from Kendal on the north coast of 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.

This one is a nice old soft cotton with a beige background in "Ukelan" (Curls) with beautiful shades of green, dark blue, red, mauve and brown floral motifs. In very good condition.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 104cm high by 224cm long.

A gorgeous example of a classic Indonesian batik.
