The Batik designation was created in Java island since 8C. Based on the book of Old Javanese Kakawin Ramayana, Batik comes from the word ‘tika’ that means sacred painting. Batik is also created by Javanese words ‘amba’ that means wide and ‘titik’ that means create dots to form lines.

Of the many batik styles and stories embedded in each motif, none is known more for its illustriousness and prestige than Parang. 

Nyanting that is also called nglengreng is a process of creating pattern on a piece of linen cloth using a hot-melted wax poured through a small spout called Canting.
