Batik factory in Penang.

Malaysia is well known for it's beautiful batiks. It was so exciting to find this little gem along the Penang coast. Both block printing and hand painting methods are used. We were welcome to wander around and go from step to step watching the artists at work. It is a simple process using molten wax as the resist. But it is the artists who produce the beautiful cloth.
