Batik Nitik is very special. Its design is the imitation of the double ikat woven Patola cloth imported from Gujarat, India (made in the early 19th century) by using batik techniques.
In Pekalongan this batik Nitik is called “Jlamprang”, in Yogyakarta and Surakarta called Nitik.
Jlamprang has the color of most north coastal batik while Nitik reflects the color of court batik, where this design was developed.
The Patola cloth which in Indonesia is called “Cinde” is still being used for ritual and Javanese traditional wedding ceremonies, especially in the court of Surakarta and Yogyakarta.
Batik Nitik is made only for kain.
