    How Indonesian batiks are made

    This is a brief clip from the BBC on the process of making batiks in Indonesia. Makes me appreciate them even more.

    I guess you will have to copy and paste, but I think it is worth the effort.

    You can quickly see why we import this fabric and not make it here. Can you imagine what it would cost if we made it?
