Traditional Javanese Stamped Batik

We buy this batik in family workshops in Solo, a town in Central Java, famous for its long tradition of batik making.

The 100% cotton is first waxed using a copper stamp called a cap. These copper stamps are made by hand and are works of art in themselves. The cotton is dyed with an indigo blue dye, rewaxed, and then dyed in soga brown - the traditional colours of Javanese batik. Finally the wax is all boiled out leaving the design.

Cloths such as this are worn all over the island of Java and especially for formal and special occasions. You can buy this batik as a whole cloth or in smaller pieces in our fat quarter sets and sample sets.
