Batik fabrics are created by using wax and dye. To make a batik, bits of the fabric are blocked by brushing wax on them. In this case the butterflies would be drawn on to the fabric using wax and then the fabric would be dyed. The areas that have the wax applied resist the dye and remain the original colour. Once the final dying has taken place the wax is removed, and the cloth is ready to use.
