Block Stamping Batik Indonesia

Batik Indonesia is processed with several different traditional ways,  one of them is block stamping.  The process of block stamping emphasizes on the application of “malam” (wax) directly onto the cloth using a block tin or copper called “cap” (pronounce chop).  They are handmade of copper strips, carefully cut and shaped, then soldered becoming beautiful desired patterns. Available in many ethnic patterns, the “cap” is dipped into hot wax and then hand-stamped onto the fabric. Aligning the edges of each block continuosly will create the desired patterns based  on the length and the wide of the fabric. When the wax is dry, the fabric is then dyed. On the finishing phase, the wax needs to be removed in order to see the beautiful pattern afterwards.
