Batik printing is traditionally made using wax-resisting dyeing technique. The wall hanging you see here is Batik printed. Though the design seems very intricate, it is very simple and does not require any specialization or any special tools and equipment.
Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to Batik print the design shown here on a muslin cloth.

White muslin cloth is best suited for this Batik Project.
