The history of Indian batik can be traced as far 2000 years. It is believed that the term is a derivation from the word `Ambatik’ which when translated literally stands for a piece of cloth with small dots or writing with wax or drawing in broken lines. It is an art appreciated all over the world.
Indians knew resist method of printings on cotton fabrics long before any other country had even tried it. Indian cotton and dyes were very popular. The indigo blue was one of the earliest dyes to be used.
The elaborate process of dying and waxing was one of the hitches that caused the art to decline. Batik tapestries were elaborate illustrations of the art, culture and traditions of the yore.
Batik is a process of decorating cloth by covering a part of it with a coat of wax and then dyeing the cloth. The waxed areas keep their original color and when the wax is removed the contrast between the dyed and un dyed areas gives the patterns. One of the significant features of this art is that it is very simple and can be done by anyone.
The art of batik is a three-stage process of waxing, dyeing and de-waxing (removing the wax). Overall the process is one where firstly the wax is used for creating designs on certain pre-defined areas on the fabric. Secondly the fabric is dyed and then the wax is removed by scraping or by boiling the cloth so that the wax peels off. The result is a beautiful piece of cloth with some very unconventional designs.
Batik is done in cotton, silk and other natural fabrics. But the cotton fabric is easy to work with and generally gives best results. Batik prints are generally using the traditional colors like white, indigo and dark brown.
