    Batik is the ancient decorative art of creating designs on fabric using dyes along with a “resist”, such as melted bees wax. The oldest known examples are on silk screens in Japan, from the Sui Dynasty (AD 581-618). Today, batik is mostly associated with Indonesia, which maintains a vibrant culture of batik producers.
