Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to color selectively by soaking the cloth in one color, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colors are desired.

This pen or Canting, as known in South East Asia, has a chamber to hold liquid wax and a single tip for drawing, thus transferring the hot wax to the cloth. It is handmade in Malaysia by artisans and comes in 4 sizes, S, M, L and XL.
