Batik cloth traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique to make. The term itself is derived from 2 Javanese words; amba (to write) and titik (dot). Contrary to most beliefs, it refers more to the creation process rather than the pattern. Another Javanese phrase for the mystical experience of making batik is mbatik manah which means drawing a batik design on the heart.

Batik requires highly awarded craftsmanship and detailing to make. Each step is honed through generations of batik ancestry. Mbatik is the first step in the creation of traditional batik. The patterns are created by applying batik wax on the mori fabric with the use of canting.

Not all patterns on the batik are colored. The next process is called nembok where we mask the parts intended to stay white with batik wax. Prior to the next coloring phase, the waxed sections are peeled clean, better known as the ngerok process. This is done to remove wax from the part to be colored soga brown. Ngirah is the process where the already de-waxed mori fabric is washed.

Later on, we mask the sections where we want to make blue and parts where we want to have the cecek. Cecek is a filler pattern made out of dots. Nyoga is the 2nd coloring phase after we add the color blue or mebel. In this stage, the mori fabric is dipped into the soga to achieve the soga brown color. Nglorod is the final step in creating traditional batik. We sink the mori fabric in boiling water, to remove the wax residue that remains intact.

The unique craftsmanship and high attention to details are reasons why each and every Batik is a masterpiece.
