Batik

An old Javanese artisan creates batik design by drawing dots and lines
on a cloth with wax resist using a spouted tool called a canting. The
applied wax resists dyes, allowing the artisan to colour selectively
by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling
water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired.

A tradition of making batik is found in Indonesia, Malaysia, India,
Singapore, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Nigeria. The
batik of Indonesia may be the best-known, and in 2009, was designated
by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
