Batik is the Javanese resist-dyeing technique of patterning cloth through the application of wax. While deeply embedded in local traditions, during the last two centuries batik has become a powerful cultural intermediary connecting Indonesia with other parts of the world. The paper outlines the history of this process and determines the impact of the Javanese batik technique and aesthetics on textile traditions in Japan, West Africa, Europe, India, and Australia.
