Batik has been in Thailand since the days of Tin Mining over 100 years ago when merchant ships traded between Phuket and Penang on a regular basis. At that time a large population of Chinese started to live in Phuket and the influences of Indonesia and Malaysia came to Phuket in the form of food and dress as part of the Peranakan culture. This influence along with the Muslim influence from the south of Thailand is still present here in modern times and has been revived as part of the 'Phuket Old Town' tourism project. The community in Phuket hold an annual Halal Festival in Kamala with parades and stalls selling food and textiles which shows just how much influence has come from Malaysia. Nowadays batik sarongs that were once thought of as just everyday clothes for the locals have now taken their place on show at the front of the clothes shops in Tanon Thalang as traditional Phuket dress.

The word Batik is thought to be derived from the word 'ambatik' which translated means 'a cloth with little dots'. The suffix 'tik' means little dot, drop, point or to make dots. Batik may also originate from the Javanese word 'tritik' which describes a resist process for dying where the patterns are reserved on the textiles by tying and sewing areas prior to dying, similar to tie dye techniques. Another Javanese phase for the mystical experience of making batik is "mbatik manah" which means "drawing a batik design on the heart".
