Indonesians, especially the Javanese, are regarded as the world’s foremost practitioners of batik – a resist-patterning technique. Hot wax is painted or stamped on cloth, which is then dipped in vats of dye. The wax blocks the dye from the patterned areas, and subsequent applications create the multi-coloured cloth.
