Abstract. Resist stitch-dyeing, also known locally as tritik (lit. dots), is resist dye textile weaving technique. Tritik is a method to embellish white cloth by tacking, which is then dyed and removed. The motif is formed after the thread is removed. Tritik methods and techniques are less popular compared to batik or dyed ikat. It is, however, used in making sasirangan cloth, a traditional cloth from South Kalimantan, Indonesia. The stitching has always been done traditionally due to the lack of clear convention on stitching as a resist-media. Thus, development of motif designs is not in full capacity. Taking into consideration the above, this study is carried out to create new geometric patterns using tritik techniques. Qualitative experiment methods are used to obtain ideal stitching parameters, which could later be applied in creating geometric patterns. The use of geometric patterns creates more organized motifs but still showing blurry impression, a distinctive feature of tritik. The combination of gradual colouring and evenly-spaced tacking creates optical illusions on motifs (depth, direction, and motion). The motifs may be applied to fashion products by accentuating optical illusions to create silhouettes on women’s clothing.
