Batik—from the Javanese word amba (to draw) and the Malay word titik (dot)—is a wax-resist method of dyeing fabrics. In block printed batik carved wood is dipped in hot wax and then stamped onto the fabric which is then dipped in dye. The parts of the cloth covered in wax will resist absorption of the dye.
