Around 1892 a group of Dutch artists introduced the Javanese technique of batik (wax-resist-dyeing) to textile and interior decoration. After 1900, the technique was introduced to the fashion in a number of European countries, outside the Netherlands gaining a great popularity in Germany, France, Poland, Great Britain and the USA. This way, the Javanese technique of textile decoration became a characteristic feature of European Art Nouveau and Art Deco fashion. The most famous designers who created batik garments were Agatha Wegerif-Gravestein in the Netherlands, Paul Poiret and Marguerite Pangon in France and Henry van de Velde in Germany.
