Description

A lovely fully hand made Batik from Kudus in Central 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.

Made by a true genius of modern batik, M Fadloli, one of the leading lights of the modern rebirth of batik in Kudus, Indonesia. Kudus  was a centre of batik during the early and mid twentieth century which more or less disappeared until recently when two or three young local artists became interested in batik and revitalised the industry. It is now one of the real major modern centres to make artistic batik.

This one is a nice soft cotton with a blue and white background in "Beras Mawur" (scattered rice) with beautiful floral motifs in green, blue, and brown. In very good condition with one small hole that is very difficult to see.

A Kain is a piece of material about 2 or a bit more metres in length. This one is 116cm high by 250cm long.

A gorgeous example of a modern Indonesian batik.
