? CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR VINTAGE BATIK ?
1. Do not fold the old batik cloth to avoid breaking the cotton fibers of the batik, and do not put it in plastic.
2. Fold the cloth lengthwise until it is as wide as a clothes hanger, cover the clothes hanger with a sponge / thin foam, then place the cloth, this is the right way to hang batik cloth or roll batik with PVC like storing songket / weaving.
3. To keep the cloth free from moth attack, place the silica gel in a porous bag so that the cloth is in a good condition and is not damp, which causes mold and stains.
4. Place the fabric in a dark room to keep the fabric color from changing over time.
5. Store in a dry place away from moisture which can damage the fabric and attract insects. Use a room / closet dryer for extra care.
6. Make sure your wooden cabinets are safe from insects, if you can put the cloth in the glass cabinet with an aluminum frame instead so it is free of wood.
7. Occasionally dry the cloth and spread it out so that the cotton fibers doesn#39;t get stressed out due to folds and piles of cloth.
8. As long as the fabric is aired, don#39;t expose it to the sun for too long, wind it in a shady place.

? WHAT IS “BATIK” ACTUALLY? ?
A term given to a traditional textile decorated using hot melted wax and natural dyes, which intricate patterns and ornaments contain philosophical values that belong to each Indonesian community. In other words, “Batik” means “writing down dots”. It could have been derived also from phrase “mbathik manah”, Javanese words which mean “to draw with whole heart”. As you may know that in ancient culture, Javanese pour their feeling and life experience through creating the art of batik.

Batik has existed since 5000BC-2600BC. This production technique entered the Indonesian archipelagos through merchants from India (Gujarat) who got in contact with local artisans during the heyday of the Silk Road maritime trading period, ca. 2-15 CE. In the 6th-8th Centuries, Batik textiles were restricted for use to Royalty and Nobility, especially in Java. From then on, this cultural practice has been passed on from generation to generation.

Batik production can take up to 2 years depending on the purposes of the textile creation and the complexity of the process. The process of producing one textile is comprised of 8 steps from designing, wax patterning on the cloth, soaking with the natural dyes, wax removal with hot and cold water, locking the color natural solution, drying and finishing (see short video on batik making process on my shop: www.nardinas.etsy.com).

Batik was added to the List of UNESCO’s Intabgible Heritage of Humanity in 2009 for its Exceptional Cultural Values. According to UNESCO, the Exceptional Cultural Values refer to cultural significance which is very exceptional as to transcend national boundaries and to be of common importance for present and future generations of all humanity.

? WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THIS BATIK? ?

According to history, the emergence of batik lasem is attached to Admiral Cheng Ho. The Lasem area was the first landing place for Admiral Zheng He#39;s troops and also the area where the Chinese people first arrived.

In the Babad Lasem (The Story of Lasem) which was rewritten by Raden Panji Kamzah in 1858, it is told that Bi Nang Un as a crew member of Dhang Puhawang Tzeng Ho from China and his wife, Na Li Ni, decided to live in Bonang, Central Java.

From the chronicle, it is believed that Na Li Ni was the first person to make lasem batik with motifs of hong birds, chrysanthemums, liongs, currency, and banji with red colors characteristic of the Chinese community.

Na Li Ni continued to make batik until his batik products were sent to all parts of the archipelago by traders returning home by ship.

Because of the uniqueness of the motif, at the beginning of the 19th century, batik lasem experienced a heyday by successfully being exported to Thailand and Suriname.

Along with the development of the times, batik lasem, which has characteristic striking colors, such as red, bottle green, and dark blue, began to have various motifs.

The motifs in Lasem batik are dominant with animal motifs combined with Javanese plant motifs.

In general, this batik has two main motifs, namely Chinese motifs with images of hong birds, dragons, partridges, and so on, while non-Chinese motifs have images of sekar universe, kendoro kendiri, kricak, grinsing.

Batik lasem has four types of motifs, namely the hong bird motif, the liong or dragon motif, the ringgit mountain motif, and the kricak or broken stone motif.

Lasem batik is also known as Tiga Negeri batik because it has three coloring processes in three different places. Red in Lasem, blue in Pekalongan, and Chocolate in Solo. This is what makes this batik unique.

You need to spend IDR 200 thousand to IDR 6 million to get a piece of lasem batik. Usually, the price is determined according to the existing motifs and the level of complexity of the motifs made because the more complicated the motifs, the more expensive the price of lasem batik.

Currently, there are around 200 Lasem batik craftsmen who make this profession a livelihood, there is even a Lasem batik village that was built to boost the prestige of coastal Batik which has the characteristic red color of this red chicken#39;s blood.

? WHY (ORIGINAL) BATIK IS MORE EXPENSIVE? ?

Following is the common reasons:
? LONG AND COMPLICATED PROCESS. As previously mentioned in WHAT IS “BATIK” ACTUALLY? Section. Original batik making process consist of 8 steps and take from 1 month to 2 years depend on the design complexity and how many color combination.
? EXCLUSIVE, ONE OF A KIND. Due to its long and complicated process, (hand drawn) batik is produced in a limited number of pieces per design.

Then how we recognize authentic hand drawn batik? Following is most common ? STEPS TO RECOGNIZE HAND DRAWN BATIK ?

? NOT PERFECT. Hand drawn batik is not perfect. You will see imperfect lines and sometimes tinge to the fabric.
? WAX TRACES. Cloth will be covered with hot melted wax and undergo multi level dying process. This caused the distinctive smell of genuine batik. The usual textile smell will fade away. Sometimes you will also see wax traces left on the fabric that usually will disappear after few times washing.
? OTHER SIDE COLOR. Genuine batik will have pattern color in both sides. Common fabrics with batik design only have strong color pattern on one side.
? UNIQUE DESIGN. Due to its long and complicated process, original batik never produced in mass. This makes the design unique.
? PRICES. Original batik will always have higher prices. Again, this because the long and complex process in making hand drawn batik.

REFERENCE: Indonesian Batik Foundation

? You might find the same hand drawn batik design but the price is different, one is less expensive, and the other is more expensive. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT? ?

? The MATERIAL being used. The best material to draw batik is cotton, and there are lots of types of cotton.
? The DESIGN. The more complex and intricate the design, the longer the process.
? The TOOL being used. Hand drawn batik tool is called canting. And there are many types of canting sizes. The smaller the canting used, the batik design will be smoother.
? The COLORS. How many colors are on a piece of batik also caused a big difference in the length of process. In short, hand drawn batik piece with 3 colors will be far less expensive compare to hand drawn batik piece with 10 colors
? The DYES. Batik with natural dyes will be more expensive than batik that using synthetic dyes. Since natural dyes derived from plants (herbs and spices) such as indigofera tinctoria, noni roots, pandan leaves, turmeric, mangosteen, etc. Be careful in identifying this dyes being used.
? DURABILITY. A good batik, the color will not easily fade away over time. It will still be beautiful even in decades.
