about batik fabrics
Batiks have been with us for over 2,000 years. They are believed to have migrated from the Asian continent to the Malay Archipelago. That region has made them the most famous, particularly the islands forming Indonesia, although batik is also found in Polynesia, India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Wax is applied to the area of the fabric that the artisan does not want to dye. After the first dye is applied, the artisan boils the fabric to rid it of the wax. Then the process is repeated again with a new design and color. The use of batiks in quilting is relatively new to the Amish, but they have been long used in Hawaiian and other quilting.
