Certain patterns were exclusive for nobility. Originally, batik was used for the traditional sarong , a piece of cloth, that was wrapped around the body. This was the exclusive piece of clothing worn by Indonesians for hundreds of years. As more modern attire was introduced to Indonesia, so has batik been adapted to be used to make more than simply sarongs.
Now shirts, dresses and shawls can be found using this traditional fabric. Batik is made using a wax resistance process. Traditionally bees wax and tree resin is used.
Lines and shapes are drawn on the fabric, using hot wax. This is a time consuming process, and requires great patience and skill. Once the wax pattern has been created, the fabric is then dyed. Where the wax was applied, the fabric retains its original color.
This process is repeated and finally the wax is removed, revealing a colorful, uniquely patterned fabric. Traditionally, 3 colors were used for batik. The patterns used were also very specific and had very clear meaning. Today, batik is more fashion conscious, and uses a large array of colors, depending on the season. The patterns used have also evolved, and the designers have much more of a free hand in what they can create.
The patterns used in batik clothing vary depending on which region they were produced. However, the overlying theme is a naturalistic one. The patterns are strongly inspired by flora. This can be seen in the leaves, flowers and swirly plant motifs. The other influence is fauna, which is evident in the bird motifs, such as peacocks and butterflies. These look particularly beautiful when used to create a flowing dress or skirt. These patterns are repeated across the fabric , and sometimes on both front and back so garments can be worn both ways.
This repeated pattern gives a wonderful flow to the fabric, and makes it fascinating to look at as the person wearing the garment moves around. Shirts were the first non sarong clothing to be produced out of batik.
