Batik is a decorative art form used on fabric.
How it's done
- A design is painted on untreated fabric using melted wax as a "resist" and the fabric is then dyed.
- If multiple colours are required, more wax is added and the fabric is re-dyed. This can be done many times for a multi-coloured fabric, starting with the lightest colours and dyeing darker colours over them.
- Finally the fabric is heated, to remove the wax and laundered, sometimes more than once before the fabric is made into clothing and/or decorative items.

So, for the batik produced in solo we called it batik Solo, etc. Each place has their own batik pattern as their signature, so just by looking at the pattern we can tell where the batik came from.
