Batik, a method of textile dyeing originating in South-East Asia. The areas of fabric that are not to be dyed are covered with melted wax, which is later removed by immersion in boiling water. The process can be repeated to produce multicolored or blended effects. Many of the traditional patterns had ancient symbolic meanings and reflected the social position of the owner. Batik was brought to Europe by Dutch traders in the 16th or 17th century and was adopted by Western craftsmen in the 19th century. The bold, exotic patterns typical of batik have also been imitated by other printing processes.
