Batik – A Staple of Balinese Fashion

batikAnybody who’s ever stayed at a luxury Balinese resort will have encountered this exotic, beautiful fabric in the many kinds of clothing, drapes, and textiles sold in Bali boutiques. It rivals the finest woven textures of the world for artistic technique, with its own unique texture thanks to their culturally-prized dying technique. In fact, Bali has done as much to introduce the world to the Indonesian sarong garment as anybody else.

Not only is batik an ideal way to make clothing designs, as well as fabrics for tablecloths, curtains, and many other household accessories, but artists even use the same technique for making batik tapestries. You’ll usually find a few these colorful and unique wall hangings in the home of anyone who has taken a vacation in Bali¬†because you just can’t resist taking one home with you.
