In "Batiks and How to Make Them," Pieter Mijer says, "Batik is the art of dyeing fabrics in one piece in different dyes consecutively, through the combination of which the pattern of the design is produced." Batik is not merely a crude method of decorating material as many people think it to be; it is not a matter of smearing wax on a piece of material with a brush, and then dipping It haphazard into any kind of dye. On the contrary, it is a craft which requires quite a good deal of skill and knowledge o! design, as well as a good ideal of color.
