Batik Tuban

The most famous village batik or Batik Petani is made in a village called “Kerek” near the city of Tuban, east Java. The whole process of making a piece of batik beginning with planting the cotton and ending with removing the wax as the last step of batik making is done in this area.
The motifs are very much influenced by Chinese culture and their traditional colors are dark blue and red, which formerly attained from vegetable dyes taken from the root of “Mengkudu” tree (= red) and the leaves of “Indigo” tree (= blue).
Batik Tuban is made for kain and selendang.
