Batiks are hand printed or individually hand drawn motifs on cotton cloth and involve the use of wax and resist dye; so they are by their nature somewhat irregular. Batik is made by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a tool called a canting or by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap. A tradition of making batik can be found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Singapore and the Philippines; but the batiks of Indonesia made in the island of Java are the best known. In Nigeria the Yoruba make cloth using the same techniques called Adire.
