Cantings (or tjantings)

+44 (0)1588 638712

Sometimes spelled tjantings, these are the wax pens which are used to apply the hot wax resist to your fabric. We buy all our cantings in Java from craftsmen working in their own homes and at a fair trade rate.

Our lovely teak handled cantings are about 17.5 cms. long and have a thick copper bowl which extends along the bottom to minimise drips. The handles are recycled from teak furniture offcuts. They come in 5 different spout sizes plus a double spout.

Many of our customers tell us that these are the easiest cantings they have ever used. No-one will ever be as practiced and precise as the Javanese, but at least you'll get a head start using the best cantings available.
