Batik Jambi is indeed
a thing of tremendous beauty and some say offer you the treasure of
its journey's mystery.
The uniqueness in
Batik Jambi lies on its fabriques.
Regarding this where
up to 80's motives or fabriques were known among the Batik Jambi However,
learning how these fabriques were created and found will be the most
exciting as we will bring ourselves back to the history of Melayu Jambi
Kingdom which is still argued to be the center of the Hindunese Kingdow
of Sriwijaya in the 4th century.
This side actually
has brought Batik jambi into the world of its kind and show how it enriches
the favours and show up to its traditional history.
In days of old,
the process of batik printing was a long and tedious one. In those days,
the 'janting', a small copper cup featuring a bamboo handle and one
or more spouts, was used to drip wax in intricate patterns on both sides
of a piece of fabric. The fabric was then immersed into a dye to color
the exposed areas. The process was repeated till the desired patterns
and colors were obtained. Boiling the fabric thoroughly removed the
wax and it was then hung in the shade to air-dry, batik never being
dried in the sun because the direct sunlight 'kills' its color
Batik Jambi so far
had take on many forms such as a simple piece of paintings, a formal
sarong, an elegant pillow cover or even a tie.
