Batik Tulis is a manually hand-drawn batik technique. Amba Titik (fabric dotting) is the Javanese dyeing technique incorporated in our designs, where our fabric is manually hand drawn with wax to make a unique pattern and story. Each line and dot is a prayer, a charm for a good life and luck. Batik has been Indonesian cultural heritage for ages for how much effort and passion are put into it.
