Banyumas style Peranakan / Straits Chinese Batik Tulis. Fully hand drawn, dipped and stripped. The penmanship style suggest a hint of what is commonly known as the Dutch style, with block print like simplicity and stylized patterns filling its floral and animals figures. We also noted the indigo blue dye. The Java Indigo was well known for its quality of indigo blue in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Banyumas style batik tulis are well known to be of exceptional quality when the indigo blue is pervasively and intensively applied all over a piece of "kain panjang", with darker indigo almost definitely more expensive, exceptional and almost always more rare, because Java Indigo dye was very expensive. Some blacks on older Banyumas batik tulis are actually very very intense indigo. It appears that newer pieces simply used black dye. Considering the indigo blue dye, the Dutch style patterns used, and the crisp fell of the cloth, we estimated this to be from around the 1930s, or sometime before the second world war. CONDITION: There are 3 small holes as indicated by white stickers, the one pictured here is the largest, there is also an approximately 4 cm repair of a rip which stitching has come loose on some part. There are also some indigo blue dye spots as pictured. PLEASE NOTE that in many Banyumas style batik tulis, crackling and veins of dye are often found, and these are not commonly considered to be faults. Please take a look at our pics or request for them by emailing us. I have only come across two of this kind of design on Banyumas style batik tulis. The other piece with no indingo dye is in my wardrobe :)
