Prima cotton has been used for a long time as the base fabric for painting traditional Indonesian Batik. One of the main reasons for artists to use prima cotton in making batik is due to its property that allows dye to be absorbed excellently into the fabric. In general, Batik tulis prima cotton is considered cheap batik fabric in comparison to batik tulis primissima cotton. Prima cotton batik tulis normally has a dimension of 2.40 m x 1.05m.
Batik tulis which was painted on prima cotton usually has a simpler pattern, less detail and consist of less colors (only one or two colors) compares to batik tulis painted on primissima cotton or silk. Even so, here at Batik Nudo, we always subject our batik tulis to the same inspection process to ensure their quality, independent of the fabric material, artists, or complexity of the batik pattern. Our consistency and quality, together with our passion to provide only the finest and excellent products and service has caused Batik Nudo to successfully grow over the year and earn the confidence and trust of our customers.
