Explore the Art of Painting and Weaving a Batik

Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to the whole cloth.  

Well, then why is it so famous?  

First of all, it’s a form of art, usually done on textile surfaces, that relies heavily on patterns and lines. Repeated modules with delicate designs cover the surface of the cloth and can be accentuated by images of flowers or secondary patterns.  

This tour allows you to discover more about the making process of the batik in one of the most famous and traditional shops in Bali: Bali Bidadari Batik. The half-day tour, instead, provides a visit to Tohpati Village, also important for working the batik. 

Witness the Real Silversmithing In a Local Village
