20 batiks réalisés à la main.

Though practiced around the world, batik originated in Indonesia, and the artisans of Java are renowned for having mastered and refined the technique. The textiles in this exhibition include pieces made for royal and aristocratic clientele, ceremonial use, and everyday fabrics worn by men and women. These textiles, from the mid-19th century through the late 20th century, originate from the most significant centers of Javanese batik production.
