Malaysia 'batik cap,' or block-waxed batik. Stamped batik has been produced in Malaysia since at least the 15th C. Originally, Malays used potatoes and other natural materials as the ‘block’ to carve the batik design into. Nowadays, copper stamps are used. Batik workshops and factories and home craft studios are found in most states in Malaysia, including Langkawi, Kedah, Penang, Kelantan and Terengganu.
