Producing a high quality piece of batik fabric, such as the panels featured here, is time consuming and requires a high degree of skill. Tradition has it that each time the batik artisan executes a particular intricate pattern, the design is not only fixed to the cloth, but the meaning of the design is engraved ever more deeply in the soul of the artisan.
