Indigo Patterned Sarong

Javanese sarong patterned in hand stamped wax resist, a technique similar to the Indian Kalamkari .The design was applied using hand carved stamps that were parts of a larger stamping tool that provided efficiency and proper spacing. Here the stamping was applied to a white tabby cotton which was then dyed in beautiful indigo. Once boiled and washed, the stamped designs lost the wax and reverted to white. Three stamp motifs ; round, square and diamond shapes that are further filed with geometrical and biomorphic all elements. Borders of stripes with some cracking patterns.
