Batik also can define our identity, Indonesian person. It reminds me of the vintage Indonesian ladies back in the old days, and it makes me feel pretty and timeless. Actually batik is a kind of timeless fashion. I mean, as we know that batik has been around a long time, and many people use it. And even now is still a trend. Batik was also used to identify someone's social status. Because of the complexity in the making, it became so classy & expensive that some of Batik motives can only be worn by the royal family.
I heard for some people say that “if you can’t buy an international designer pieces, at least buy the local product.” And I absolutely agree with that statement, from economical side batik more friendly on the pocket than the other international product which is very expensive. But still as beautiful as international product. So even though it’s late, Happy Batik Day, people! Wear it and be proud of it. :)
one of my favorite motif :))
