BATIK (Support our local product)
One of traditionally painting and textile dyeing teqnique. Not just about drawing and painting. But every pattern is a symbol, that have a deep meaning. special meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe.
Traditional colours include indigo, dark brown, and white, which represent the three major Hindu Gods (Brahmā, Visnu, and Śiva)
For me, Batik is is a masterpiece of civilization. Why…?. Because each pattern is human ingenuity to describing each of the traits of civilization. For this, the existence of batik , should be preserved so as not to become extinct.
Then, how reinforced batik will survive against modernization and pop culture?
