Batik, meaning Ôwax writingÕ is an art form of decorating the cloth by resisting the design parts or pattern with a layer of wax, over-dyeing it and then removing the wax. The outcome is a pattern on the surface of the fabric, which was resisted with wax initially. The characteristic effects of batik are the fine cracks that appear in the wax, which allow small amounts of dye to seep in. The BASIK LINEN B/W series is created using hand block printing.
