Product details

Cloud Batik

Batik is the most renowned textile art in Indonesia. The design is applied in the wax-resist method. Wax is painted on, and the fabric is then dyed, the dye adhering to the wax-free area. The wax is then removed with boiling water and the same process is sometimes repeated with a different color. As the dyes seep through the thin cotton ground Batiks are always double sided.

The island of Cirebon has a large indigenous Chinese population and its batiks feature Chinese cloud design. This batik features bright blues in a bold, almost modern design.
