It was then called La Xie (là xié 臘纈). As early as in Qin (qín cháo 秦朝) and Han Dynasties (hàn cháo漢朝), people in southwestern minority regions of China, finding that wax can prevent from dyeing(rǎn 染), proficiently mastered the craft of batik. They used bees wax (là 蠟) and worm wax as material in preventing dyeing.
