Abstract

Natural elements of soil are a potential medium for block batik. The local batik producers usually use synthetic dyes, which contributed pollute the environment. There is a need for more natural dye options in block batik fabric dyeing. The practices effectively reduce waste emissions. This option will support an alternative to the batik industries, which is the current issues dealing with environmental challenges that sparked this project. This study employs an experimental textile approach. This study aims to identify soil types that can be used as colourants on fabrics suitable for batik block printing. This study will introduce eco-friendly dyes to the local batik industry.
