What is a Batik?
Batiking is the process of waxing and dyeing cloth. The word "batik" is thought to be derived from the word "ambatik" which translated means "a cloth with little dots". The suffix "tik" means little dot, drop, point or to make dots. Batik may also originate from the Javanese word "tritik" which describes a resist process for dyeing where the patterns are reserved on the textiles by tying and sewing areas prior to dyeing, similar to tie dye techniques.
