The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot. To make a batik selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. These pieces are all hand painted and hand stamped yard by yard. This technique is known to be more than one thousand years old. Although there are thousands of different batik designs particular designs, have traditionally been associated with festivals and religious ceremonies.
Previously it was thought that the cloth had mystical powers to ward off ill fortune while other pieces could bring good luck.
