Sang Made Erass Taman is a traditional batik artist from Yogyakarta in Java, Indonesia. His work is entirely hand made using a traditional Tjanting tool to draw with hot wax onto the fabric. Originally from Bali, his father sent him to Yogyakarta to study when he was 11 years old and there he was adopted by a family from Java. An architect by training, his interest in Javanese textiles was inspired by his adoptive family and he later decided to develop his own style of batik.. He now has a team of 18 helping him make his bespoke batik textiles.
