Batik is a wax-resist dyeing technique of fabric, which originally originated in Indonesia. Many Indonesian batik patterns are symbolic. To make batik, a few selected areas of the cloth are blocked by brushing wax over it and then the cloth is dyed. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create intricate batik designs. Batik prints in shirts and dresses is a new evolving trend for the people of all age groups. Batik fabric is cleaned in cold water and it is easy to maintain. Modern batik is applied on numerous items like wall hangings, scarves and paintings with brighter batik designs. Design on batik fabric can be applied to the whole cloth or on some specific areas.
