The word batik is Javanese in origin. It comes from the Javanese ambatik that consist of amba means “wide” or “large”, and tik or nitik means “dot” or “make a dot”. The word bathikan also means “drawing” or “writing” in Javanese, the “th-” sound is reduced to a “t-” sound more pronouncable to non-Javanese speakers.
Batik making technique
Written Batik (Batik Tulis)
Batik Tulis is made by writing wax liquid on the surface of the cloth with a tool called canting. Canting made of copper with a handle made of bamboo or wood. The making of hand-written batik takes approximately 1-3 months depending on the complexity and detail of batik.
Stamped Batik (Batik Cap)
Batik Cap is batik whose manufacturing process uses a stamp tool. This stamp tool is made of copper plates which form a batik motif on one of its surfaces. Stamp tool or canting cap is made by people who are experts in that field. Making batik with cap works the same way as using a stamp, but using waxes, not ink.
Painted batik (Batik Lukis)
Batik Lukis is a technique of making batik by painting (with or without a pattern) on a white cloth using a medium or a combined medium like canting, brush, banana stalk, broomsticks, cotton, toothpicks, patchwork, or other media depending on the expression of a painter. Batik painting is the result of the development of batik art. The essence of batik painting is the process of making batik that does not use traditional motifs that are commonly found. The resulting motifs are the creation of the maker, usually producing contemporary (free) motifs or patterns with brighter, more striking colors, and more diverse color variations.
We from Svara DAO will make Batik Cap, for the purposes of winning prizes for competitions, seminars and workshops related to Svara DAO and NEAR activities. And for partners with sponsors, this is part of the NEAR promotion.
And we are collaborating with Batik Mawar Putih, one of the best Batik companies from Indonesia which is expanding to Europe and US.
With us from Svara DAO wearing Batik with the NEAR logo, it will really support us to collaborate with local government agencies in Indonesia.
This is the NEAR Batik design
We take a minimum of Batik printing, only 30 pieces
|1 Piece Batik Cap||$ 25|
|30 Pieces Batik Cap||$ 750|
We have negotiated this price and the actual price for 1 piece is $34
we deliberately only put the NEAR logo, because if there are councils who want it we just have to send it and you pay the shipping fee to your country.
