Batik is a traditional method of hand painting. The artist begins with a blank white sarong. Melted wax is poured into a stylus and is used to draw the outline of the design. This keeps the color inside the outline. This results in a white outline when the wax is removed. Once the wax is dry, the artist will fill in the design using little pieces of sponge wrapped around a stick. The color will be dyed into the fabric until it reaches the wax outlines. The color will bleed through the fabric so the design will be vibrant on both sides of the sarong. After the design is painted, the wax is removed resulting in a one of a kind, hand painted sarong.
Sarong is an Indonesian word. Lava Lava is the Hawaiian word for Sarong. Pareo is the Tahitian word for sarong. Sarongs are traditionally used as shawls, bathing suit cover-ups, beach wraps and covers and even as tablecloths. Sarongs are machine or hand washable in a recommended gentle cycle in cold water and hung to dry.
