Batik Sarong Terengganu Project - Part 3

I have been wanting to share with you what we learnt on our trip to Terengganu but I'm still waiting for the pics we took. It's been an awfully busy time for everybody but hopefully I'll get them soon.

For now, here are more gorgeous Terengganu batik chop/block for you to feast your eyes on. I am, of course, oversimplifying the process but to give you a quick idea just imagine each piece had to be stamped with wax bit by bit, part by part and then dyed, boiled, re-waxed, re-dyed and re-boiled over and over again depending on the number of colours they decide to use. Each piece. All by hand.
