Indonesian Vintage Copper Tjaps
Vintage Copper Tjaps from Indonesia
A Tjap is a 3-dimensional copper stamp used with hot wax to create a resist for batik fabrics.
Tjaps are made using narrow copper strips that are twisted and shaped into designs.
The copper strips are then then soldered to less conductive open steel base with a handle.
This beautiful Tjap can still be used to create deigns on fabric or put on display!
These Tjaps are from my collection and have been lovingly cared for and are in excellent condition.
Tjaps of this quality are becoming harder and harder to find.
They make a great gift or addition to your studio.
