To use Ankara more, manufacturing companies have most recently included Ankara prints on for clothing. 


Ankara print Fabrics are made through an Indonesian wax-resist dyeing technique called Batik.In. These methods are used to “resist” the dye from reaching all the cloth, thereby creating a pattern.

The wax fabric can be sorted into categories of quality due to the processes of manufacturing. The colors comply with the local preferences of the costumes.  Some wax prints can be named after personalities, cities, building, sayings or occasions.
