Batik is a very old textile decoration technique. It consists in painting the fabric with wax, then dyeing it with color, finally removing the wax in boiling water. I am proud to use only beeswax and natural colors extracted from plants: this makes the process even longer, it can last from days to few weeks to reach a deep color with many dyeing baths.
