How it works

Our batik Hand paint Process

step 1

Outlining motif

The artist outlines the motif in hot liquid wax to prevent colors from mixing.

step 2

Hand painting

Next, each color is painted one by one onto the stretched pareo.

Step 3

Drying the pareo

Pray for sunny weather! The pareo must hang to air dry. Allowing time for all the designs to take their form.

Step 4

Fabric soaking

After the pareo is dry, it is then soaked in several baths to melt the wax out of the fabric. Leaving your beautiful design!

Step 5

Finishing up

The pareo is then dried again, sewn, ironed, checked for flaws, packaged and then shipped to you!
