This lovely top quality cotton batik fabric is made in Solo, a town in Central Java with an old and thriving batik industry. We buy it direct from the small scale manufacturing families who have lived in the "Batik District" of Laweyan for generations.
Often known as Bali Batik, this batik is made in long lengths, the background colours are dyed first with a variety of interesting, non traditional techniques and then wax is applied with copper stamps. A second layer of dyes is applied on top, and then the wax is removed in very hot water.
Available by the metre, in sample sets of 6 x 10 inch squares and in sets of four fat quarters. (50 cms. squares)
