From Java’s rich history and dense population has emerged a beautiful art form: the batik textiles for which the island is famous. From the court inspired motifs and subdued color palette of Imogiri in south-central Java, to the bright trade-inspired imagery of the north coast, and the handspun handmade character of Tuban batik, a rich textile experience awaits the visitor to Java.
