Batik

Indonesia Post issued this special souvenir sheet during the World Stamp Championship held at Jakarta from 18 to 24 June 2012. It celebrates a traditional Javanese textile process where wax is applied to the surface of the fabric before it is dyed. This process can be repeated many times to build up a highly intricate design. The sheet features seven printed stamps with the larger stamp including an actual piece of Batik dyed cloth.
