Batik is an ancient art that has been practiced for 2,000 years in southeast Asia. This intricate dyeing process creates beautiful, intricate designs that are unique to the region they come from or tell a story. The process uses dye-resistant wax to create intricate patterns and designs, and the wax is then washed to reveal the the pattern or the process is repeated to create multiple colors.
Each of the Batik coasters is individually printed with batik techniques by Batik Boutique artisans. Patterns are created with wax that is stamped onto the fabric prior to dyeing it red.
