To become a master of batik stamping requires meticulous precision and care. Seeing the master at work is like watching a dance. The copper stamp with the handle is first dipped with great care in hot wax before the master with ease and speed moves the batik stamp to its designated place on the cloth, measured out, in advance by the craftsman’s left hand, which directs the stamps and balances his own weight while he lightly makes the impression into the cloth, before the process is repeated all over again. All the copper stamps are hand made by these masters based on original drawings by Mirah.
