Sarawak Batik

Last fall I was shopping while in Borneo and discovered Sarawak Batik.  

The array of choices was impressive.  To make batik cloth is blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax onto it.  The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color.  The process i then repeated to create more elaborate and colorful designs.  Here is a sample of what I shipped home.  

If you're wondering what I'll do with it...  stay tuned.  I plan on using them as lining for purses for the upcoming Kilometer 66 Fall Collection.
