Howdy all !
Today, we Indonesian are celebrating Batik’s Day !
Do you all know batik? I’ll tell you a brief about it.
Batik is a traditional art just like painting in a fabric. It’s so unique! In fact, each region in Indonesia has their own types of design, history and characteristics. In traditional way, the pattern/motive is made by candle which was melted before and the artisan use them for drawing in the fabric using a tool that we named canting. Beside making pattern in handmade, Batik also can be made by printing. But the price of printed batik is cheaper than a handmade batik. Some people know how to distinguish printed batik and handmade batik, and some people do not.
Here it is some pictures about batik. [aci]
