Tohpati, a village best known for its batik workshop, is 11 kilometers (seven miles) from Kuta. Batik is an Indonesian dyeing technique in which portions of a textile are covered in wax before the fabric is dyed. The wax blocks the dye where it's applied, but the dye is absorbed by those sections that aren't covered. The female artisans in Tohpati demonstrate the level of detail that goes into the weaving, waxing and painting steps involved in creating batik. In Tohpati, you can have any garment or cloth you bring to the village batik dyed.
