What is Batik?

Batik is a fabric dying method using wax to create patterns and designs. 

This method makes use of a resist technique; applying areas of cloth with wax (a dye-resistant substance) to prevent them from absorbing colors when the cloth is dipped into dye.

Not only as a dye-resistant substance, the wax applied is also used to control colors from spreading out from a particular area to create motif when the dye is painted.


A method thought to be over a thousand years old, today, batik has taken on a much wider meaning. It can be referred to:
  • cloth block printed with wax or
  • cloth decorated with hand-drawn designs.
  • cloth decorated with traditional batik designs without the use of the resist method
The use of batik has also extended from clothing to everything from home furnishings and table cloths to handicrafts.

In Malaysia, batik has become a national identity and flourish in the arena of fashion where batik attire is worn for both formal and informal occasions.

When Malaysia hosted the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) in 1998, leaders showed up to proceedings decked in floral and swirling trade marked batik patterns.
