WHAT IS BATIK?
Batik is a popular Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing, which is applied to plain white cotton fabric. The printed fabric in Batik Baby Books™ is made by applying the wax with a copper block stamp - the wax resists the dyes allowing the artist to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating - if multiple colours or tones are desired.
There are three stages in the creation of the Batik Baby Books™
1. The fabrics are hand printed and selected from a family run batik fabric shop in Bali.
2. Cut & sewn in a small village near Ubud, at the home of Kadek (the tailor).
3. The cover is then printed in another village in Bali, at the home workshop of
Dewa and his brother-in-law, the screen printer.
