Batik - The People Behind the Cloth

Beautiful batik textiles from Java. You will never look at batik in the same way again!


The people of Java produce the finest batik in the world, and yet most of the makers are poor and their stories remain untold.

The traditions of making this unique fabric by waxing and dyeing are centuries old and carefully passed on from mother to daughter.

You will be amazed at the patience and expert skills which are needed to make these beautiful cloths and fascinated by the stories and the people behind them.
