Hi Maniam.. we cannot in one word affirm that Batik has its origin in India. Even though its exact history is uncertain, fragments of batik s projected origin dates back to the first century where it was discovered in ancient Egyptian tombs. However the history of Indian batik can be traced as far back as 2000 years. Evidence of early Batik has also been found all over the Middle East, in India, Central Asia and Africa.

The origin of Batik is by no means new. and there are controversies in regard to the origin of this art. In fact, it is believed to have originated from India and introduced into China during the Tang Dynasty 618 -905 AD. There is yet another claim that it originated from Java, in a process which the Javanese used in making their colorful batik sarongs. It reached its highest form in Java, where the craft has been a cottage industry since the 7th century. Nevertheless all these theories are yet to be proven.

I have also read somewhere that the traditional colours of the Indonesian Batek include indigo, dark brown, and white which represents the three major Hindu Gods Brahm , Viṣ ṇ u,and shiva , and certain patterns can only be worn by royals. How far is this true?
