Ancient cultures all over the world have their own traditional techniques to tell stories with cloth.
In Indonesia, this art form is known as Batik.
Batik making is a very special process. It is the careful and skilled product of using wax resist and colourful dyes to create pictures and design motifs onto cloth, by hand.
Here’s a short video clip which shows a sampling of the batik making process.
It’s pretty amazing to see all the work that goes into each piece of cloth.
