Batik vest: DIY project; Skirt: handmade by myself)
What's your favorite motif of batik? So many motifs: mega mendung, udan liris, kawung, parang, aawww my knowledge was sooo little. I don't know much, meanwhile, Indonesian culture is sooo rich!
UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization)`s list describes Indonesian Batik as: The techniques, symbolism and culture surrounding hand-dyed cotton and silk garments known as Indonesian Batik permeate the lives of Indonesians from beginning to end: infants are carried in batik slings decorated with symbols designed to bring the child luck, and the dead are shrouded in funerary batik.
