As one of the traditional printing and dyeing crafts, Tujia batik mainly prevailed in Bouyei, Miao,Yao and Kelao Nationality in the past. After the formation of Zhangjiajie tourism, Tujia batik gradually becomes popular in the market.

Tujia batik is usually used as decorations of clothes, blankets, bed sheets etc. Tujia people use wax to draw geometric patterns or flowers, birds, fishes on white cloth after the wax dips in wax liquid. Then, the cloth should be put in an indigo vat (mainly blue). Finally boiling it in water until the wax gets out of the cloth totally and the decorative patterns appear.

Nowadays, Tujia batik is famous for its tautness, smooth lines, interesting decoration and distinct Tujia styles. When foreign visitors pay a visit to Zhangjiajie, they always show much interest on Tujia batik, so most of them buy it as a souvenir or collection.
