Hand Stamped Javanese Batiks
The contemporary batiks below were made by hand with a copper printing block dipped in hot wax and then stamped on the fabric. When the fabric was dyed, the pattern was resisted by the wax. Each is a complete sarong length, and has natural irregularities throughout. Those pieces shown with a border portion have a layout similar to that at the right; others are patterned all over with the design shown.
