STORY BEHIND THE BATIK TULIS: The Farmlands

“The Farmlands”  batik trousers depicts Kompeni Petani motifs, meaning the farmer’s company in the Indonesian. Symbolizing life of work in agriculture, this pattern is a way to tell a story about life, both in the past during the Dutch colonial era or today. Various versions of this pattern have been created to story tell about the variety of marine life, markets, transportation etc. All patterns that are created depend on the imagination of the artists themselves.

“Batik Tulis” means a free-hand painting technique using melted wax to design a motif based on a heritage of Indonesian symbolism on textiles. This specific fabric was hand dyed and hand drawn by batik artists in Cirebon, Indonesia.

The fabric has been specially hand-drawn and irregularities are a natural characteristic of this fabric.
