Know about batik

Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing
applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using
this technique, originated from Indonesia,
Batik is made either by drawing dots and
lines of the resist with a spouted tool
called a tjanting,or by printing the
resist with a copper stamp called a cap.
The applied wax resists dyes and therefore
allows the artisan to colour selectively
by soaking the cloth in one colour,
removing the wax with boiling water,
and repeating if multiple colours are desired.
A tradition of making batik is found in
various countries; the batik of Indonesia,
however, may be the best-known.
Indonesian batik made in the island of Java has
a long history of acculturation, with diverse
patterns influenced by a variety of cultures,
and is the most developed in terms of pattern,
technique, and the quality of workmanship.
In October 2009, UNESCO designated Indonesian
batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible
Heritage of Humanity.
