Tjaps (also spelled caps) are the beautiful copper stamps which are used to apply the whole design in wax at one time. They can be used to apply wax to paper or silk as well as cotton.

All our tjaps are hand made in Java by craftsmen who still make them in the traditional way. These are second hand reconditioned tjaps bought from a Javanese flea market, and we can make no guarantees about how well any one of them will work.

 Click here for tips on how to use our tjaps.
