Love Indonesian Batik

Batik is an Indonesian cultural inheritance that must be preserved. One of the easiest ways to preserve this heritage is by wearing batik for daily use.

Batik comes in multiple patterns that are divided into different families of patterns. This growing number of patterns and styles has slowly shifted the perception that batik is only suitable for formal functions. With the appropriate mix and match, batik can be such a charming attire to wear for any occasion.

Why Do We Love Indonesian Batik?

However, it is not a surprise that our neighbouring countries have several times claimed batik as part of their nations’ assets. To prevent such thing from happening again, Indonesia has formally registered and declared batik as the country’s cultural heritage.

 

On October 2, 2009, UNESCO recognised batik as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The date has been known to be National Batik Day since then. It is our duty, as a cultured nation, to preserve and love batik.
