Abstract

Various attempts were made to continue preserving batik as one of the nation’s identities of Indonesia. One of the attempts is to simplify the process of producing hand-drawn batik using natural cold wax made from tamarind seed powder (Tamarindus indica L). The polysaccharide content in tamarind seed powder has good coagulant properties so it can be used as a barrier in the process of coloring batik. The use of the natural ingredient makes cold wax environmentally friendly, not harmful to health, and safe to use by anyone, including children. This research is a qualitative research with an exploratory method, through literature studies and direct experiments on the use of gutta tamarind as a medium for batik painting. The purpose of this study is to further inform the role of tamarind paste or gutta as an environmentally friendly material that functions as wax in the process of batik making, and compare it with traditional hot batik wax.
