The batiks from the area of Giriloyo in Central Java are stunning in their use of dark indigo and deep yoga browns. For this 2-meter textile, the artist uses a hand drawing technique to apply the wax pattern that will resist the dye. After each dye process the batik artist will re-apply wax to achieve another level of colour.
This classic batik will grace any home as a bed throw or table covering.
