Anyway, here are some batik sarongs from Indonesia in traditional patterns. In the first photo, the melted-wax resist was applied with a wood or metal stamp. In the second and third, it was put on with a tjanting, a metal-tipped pen-like tube that allows the artisan to draw designs and make tiny dots. The drawn patterns are considered more valuable than the stamped ones, because the color can be placed more precisely.
From Slovakia, the pleated cotton of a traditional skirt from the late 19th century was also dyed in indigo. The resist was a mixture of clay, gum arabic, alum, in some kind of gooey "salve" of tallow, lard or vaseline. It was applied with wooden printing blocks.
