Stamp Batik Process

Just like hand drawn batik, stamp batik done manually. However, unlike the process of making hand-drawn batik using pen called canting, stamp batik cloth requires media tools like stamp made of copper or brass stamped cloth laid on the table designed with a specific motif. Normally the block size 20x20, 25x25cm or depend on the shape. Stamp batik required precision in the process. If one side does not quite fit with the other side then the batik works failed. But compare to hand drawn batik, stamp batik is easier and faster. So the price is more affordable.
