Classic Solo refers to the classic design of Solor, Java batiks and the meticulous work that is required to achieve these detailed motifs which takes many months. The batiks from the area of Giriloyo in Central Java are stunning in their use of dark indigo and deep soga 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. Wrap yourself in it for a night out and watch how many comments you get!
