Join us on this visual feast of Indonesian textiles as we explore several working studios on the Island of Java. 'Batik of Java: A Visual Journey' explores the world of batik from early 'Nitik' dotted patterns through contemporary explorations in fashion and installation art.

Batik of Java, offers a wonderful overview into the national treasure of Indonesia. A wonderful opportunity to learn batik visually, and an excellent basis for moving on to appreciate some of the many books on batik, surface design, and Indonesian Art & Culture.

Batik Process: Step by Step

The DVD begins with an overview of the batik making process, step by step. Explores early patterning and the influences of culture and trade on both design and choice of color.  Then the DVD visits a family in Ambarawa, north Java, who produce indigo pigment to supply to numerous workshops across Java. From there we visit a collective of artisans in Central Java who take us through then entire process with rich narrative and stunning visuals along the way. We learn about their interesting past and their ideas for the future.
