What do you get when you blend insanely talented wax workers, resilient hand woven fabrics and deep tubs of natural indigo dye? Batik. The greatest addition to your family home since the purchase of the ten-seat sofa.

Declared by UNESCO as none other than a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, Batik is an ancient art that can be found alive and well in many parts of Indonesia. 

Intricate details, steady hands and intense focus; step inside this Balinese batik factory and be overawed by the incredible show of craftsmanship and dedication to tradition.
