Personal highlights

  1. Batik: Indonesian technique to dye a fabric with wax and colors
  2. Technique: applying the wax, dye with one color, remove wax again, repeat
  3. History: already used in Egypt in the 4th century BC and later the Chinese
  4. Workshops: visiting a very touristic and a more traditional place of production
  5. IKEA: meeting the guy who produced Batik horses for the Swedish giant
