The use of batik was already recorded in the 12th century, and the textile has become a strong source of identity for Indonesians crossing religious, racial and cultural boundaries. It is also believed the motif made the batik famous.
The batik industry of Java flourished from the late s to early s, but declined during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia. Batik has somewhat revived at the turn of the 21st century, through the efforts of Indonesian fashion designers to innovate batik by incorporating new colours, fabrics, and patterns. Batik has become a fashion item for many Indonesians, and may be seen on shirts, dresses, or scarves for casual wear; it is a preferred replacement for jacket-and-tie at certain receptions.
Traditional batik sarongs are still used in many occasions. After the UNESCO recognition for Indonesian batik on 2 October , the Indonesian administration asked Indonesians to wear batik on Fridays, and wearing batik every Friday has been encouraged in government offices and private companies ever since.
Batik is also popular in the neighbouring countries of Singapore and Malaysia. It is produced in Malaysia with similar, but not identical, methods to those used in Indonesia. However, Dr Fiona Kerlogue of the Horniman museum argued that the Malaysian printed wax textiles, made for about a century, were quite a different tradition from the "very fine" traditional Indonesian batiks produced for many centuries.
Batik is featured in the national airline uniforms of the three countries, represented by batik prints worn by flight attendants of Singapore Airlines , Garuda Indonesia and Malaysian Airlines.
The female uniform of Garuda Indonesia flight attendants is a modern interpretation of the Kartini style kebaya with parang gondosuli motifs. Batik is traditionally sold in 2. It is worn by wrapping it around the hip, or made into a hat known as blangkon. The cloth can be filled continuously with a single pattern or divided into several sections.
Certain patterns are only used in certain sections of the cloth. For example, a row of isosceles triangles , forming the pasung motif, as well as diagonal floral motifs called dhlorong , are commonly used for the head.
However, pasung and dhlorong are occasionally found in the body. Other motifs such as buketan flower bouquet and birds are commonly used in either the head or the body.
As each region has its own traditional pattern, batiks are commonly distinguished by the region they originated in, such as batik Solo , batik Pekalongan , and batik Madura. Batiks from Java can be distinguished by their general pattern and colours into batik pedalaman inland batik or batik pesisir coastal batik.
Batiks which do not fall neatly into one of these two categories are only referred to by their region. A mapping of batik designs from all places in Indonesia depicts the similarities and reflects cultural assimilation within batik designs. Inland batik or batik kraton Javanese court batik is the oldest form of batik tradition known in Java. Inland batik has earthy colour  such as black, indigo, brown, and sogan brown-yellow colour made from the tree Peltophorum pterocarpum , sometimes against a white background, with symbolic patterns that are mostly free from outside influence.
Certain patterns are reserved for royalty, while other are worn on specific occasions. At a Javanese wedding for example, the bride wears specific patterns at each stage of the ceremony. Batik Solo typically has sogan background and is preserved by the Susuhunan and Mangkunegaran Court. Batik Jogja typically has white background and is preserved by the Yogyakarta Sultanate and Pakualaman Court. Coastal batik is produced in several areas of northern Java and Madura. In contrast to inland batik, coastal batiks have vibrant colours and patterns inspired by a wide range of cultures as a consequence of maritime trading.
Pekalongan has the most active batik industry. A notable sub-type of coastal batik called Jawa Hokokai is not attributed to a particular region. During the Japanese occupation of Indonesia in early , the batik industry greatly declined due to material shortages.
The workshops funded by the Japanese however were able to produce extremely fine batiks called Jawa Hokokai. Another coastal batik called tiga negeri batik of three lands is attributed to three regions: Lasem, Pekalongan, and Solo, where the batik would be dipped in red, blue, and sogan dyes respectively. As of , batik tiga negeri was only produced in one city. Natural indigo dye made from Indigofera is among the oldest known dyes in Java, and its local name tarum has lent its name to the Citarum river and the Tarumanagara kingdom, which suggests that ancient West Java was once a major producer of natural indigo.
Noted Priangan batik is produced in Ciamis , Garut , and Tasikmalaya. Other traditions include Batik Kuningan influenced by batik Cirebon, batik Banten that developed quite independently, and an older tradition of batik Baduy. Batik Banten employs bright pastel colours and represents a revival of a lost art from the Sultanate of Banten , rediscovered through archaeological work during — Twelve motifs from locations such as Surosowan and several other places have been identified.
Batik Baduy only employs indigo colour in shades ranged from bluish black to deep blue. It is traditionally worn as iket , a type of Sundanese headress similar to Balinese udeng , by Outer Baduy people of Lebak Regency , Banten. Trade relations between the Melayu Kingdom in Jambi and Javanese coastal cities have thrived since the 13th century.
Therefore, coastal batik from northern Java probably influenced Jambi. The village of Mudung Laut in Pelayangan district is known for producing batik Jambi. Batik Jambi, as well as Javanese batik, influenced the Malaysian batik.
The Minangkabau people also produce batik called batiak tanah liek clay batik , which use clay as dye for the fabric. The fabric is immersed in clay for more than 1 day and later designed with motifs of animal and flora. Batik making in the island of Bali is relatively new, but a fast-growing industry. Many patterns are inspired by local designs, which are favoured by the local Balinese and domestic tourists.
Modern batik artists express themselves freely in a wide range of subjects. Contemporary batik is not limited to traditional or ritual wearing in Bali. Some designers promote batik Bali as elegant fabric that can be used to make casual or formal cloth. Using high class batik, like hand made batik tulis , can show social status. Batik was mentioned in the 17th century Malay Annals. The legend goes when Laksamana Hang Nadim was ordered by Malacca King, Sultan Mahmud, to sail to India to buy pieces of serasah cloth batik with 40 types of flowers depicted on each.
Unable to find any that fulfilled the requirements explained to him, he made up his own. On his return unfortunately his ship sank and he only managed to bring four pieces, earning displeasure from the Sultan. The method of Malaysian batik making is different from those of Indonesian Javanese batik, the pattern being larger and simpler with only occasional use of the canting to create intricate patterns. It relies heavily on brush painting to apply colours to fabrics.
The colours also tend to be lighter and more vibrant than deep coloured Javanese batik. The most popular motifs are leaves and flowers. Malaysian batik often displays plants and flowers to avoid the interpretation of human and animal images as idolatry, in accordance with local Islamic doctrine. Indians are known to use resist method of printing designs on cotton fabrics, which can be traced back years.
Initially, wax and even rice starch were used for printing on fabrics. Until recently batik was made only for dresses and tailored garments, but modern batik is applied in numerous items, such as murals, wall hangings, paintings, household linen, and scarves, with livelier and brighter patterns. Over the past century, batik making in Sri Lanka has become firmly established.
The Sri Lankan batik industry is a small scale industry which can employ individual design talent and mainly deals with foreign customers for profit. It is now the most visible of the island's crafts with galleries and factories, large and small, having sprung up in many tourist areas. Rows of small stalls selling batiks can be found all along Hikkaduwa 's Galle Road strip. Mahawewa , on the other hand, is famous for its batik factories. Batik is done by the ethnic people in the South-West of China.
The Miao , Bouyei and Gejia people use a dye resist method for their traditional costumes. The traditional costumes are made up of decorative fabrics, which they achieve by pattern weaving and wax resist. Almost all the Miao decorate hemp and cotton by applying hot wax then dipping the cloth in an indigo dye.
The cloth is then used for skirts, panels on jackets, aprons and baby carriers. Like the Javanese, their traditional patterns also contain symbolism, the patterns include the dragon, phoenix, and flowers. In Africa, where batik was originally imported by Dutch merchants from Indonesia then the Netherlands East Indies , paste made from starch or mud is used as a resist instead of wax.
The most developed resist-dyeing skills are to be found in Nigeria where the Yoruba make adire cloths. Two methods of resist are used: The paste is most often made from cassava starch, rice, and other ingredients boiled together to produce a smooth thick paste. The Yoruba of West Africa use cassava paste as a resist while the Soninke and Wolof people in Senegal uses rice paste. The Bamana people of Mali use mud as a resist. Parang klithik pattern from Solo.
