batik at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Method of dyeing textiles, principally cottons, in which patterned areas are covered with wax so that they will not receive color. Multicolored effects are achieved by repeating the dyeing process several times, the initial pattern of wax being boiled off and another design applied before redyeing. Wax was applied with bamboo strips in Indonesia, where the technique originated. A small copper pot with a handle and narrow applicator spout for applying the wax came into use in Java by the mid-18th cent.; a wood-block wax applicator was developed in the 19th cent. Dutch traders imported the cloth and the technique to Europe. Today machines for applying wax in traditional Javanese patterns reproduce the same effects as the hand-dyeing process.
