The influence of the Malay in the Malay Peninsula as well as developments in the Malay batik many starting to trade the past by merchants who came to trade to Malaya.

Batik is believed to be derived from the Javanese words ‘ba’ and ‘tik’ which mean a drop of wax. In the book "Arts and Craft In Indonesia" the word batik comes from 'ambatik' which is a fabric made of small and fine dots also means 'tik' meaning the Javanese word, 'tritik' or 'taritik'. According to Tan Sri Makmun Murod, “some people think that the existence of the word ‘ti-tik ’is due to the process and the word is blocked because it follows the pattern of the process which produces small dots on the fabric. This definition does not include screen batik that does not go through the above process but it is still called batik.
Batik is a handicraft art that relies heavily on handicrafts (manual) through its processes performed by humans alone and assisted by relatively traditional tools. Batik is processed using four specific techniques namely Block, Block and stencil, Block and Canting, and Canting or scratch.
