Javanese Batik: Stamped Ones

Still handmade as the motif is stamped by hand although in this way one can now mass produce the designs. 

Artisans in Solo created these art in copper blocks.

The copper block is dipped in hot wax and stamped into the fabric carefully. The sizes of the blocks vary like there’s a small rectangular one below for the border.

And this one’s a square block to cover large areas like the center of the round table cloth.

The above pattern in brownish wax will be the white area when the round table cloth is dyed in indigo.
