Designs are drawn by pencil onto white cotton cloth. The cloth is waxed and the brightest color dyed first, with the waxed area resisting the dye. The process is repeated with wax put on the area of the picture where the maker wishes to retain the previous color. The process continues until the last color (the darkest) is applied. The whole picture is then covered in wax. When the wax dries it is cracked and the picture is dipped in black dye to give the distinctive batik appearance.

Artisans of Nepal’s Lydia Trading handcraft these batiked floral cards with cotton fabric on handmade paper. Makes a lovely gift too, in blue batiked box with big buttons on the side.
