Apparently @themosaicinitiative was launched yesterday + we're wedged in the Fashion section of their mosaicmy.com. Congratulations on the launch! x

When a designer buys fabric from you, expect magic, nothing less. @ardishirh of @bijibijiethicalfashion purchased some batik ela and batik sarongs from us recently. And voila! Loving the fun + quirky play with batik! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

The layers of wax hand-blocking, fabric conteng + bath dyeing involved to produce the batik Jawa Terengganu.

The conteng bit, or rather motifs spot colouring are normally done at home, mostly by ladies. Otherwise, hand-blocked batik workshops are mainly operated by men due to the hard labour involved. A friend who's from Losong related that back when he was growing up, a football team mate would occassionally be late. His father would make him conteng 50 pieces of sarong before he can go off to play football with his friends. Yup! You gotta earn it. 😎😎😎

During our last trip to Kuala Terengganu, we spent time exploring old prints. We worked on "batik Jawa Terengganu". My great grandfather came from Semarang, the only Javanese heritage we still keep is our sambal goreng Jawa. So it's an interesting learning, at least for me. The batik carries the format, patterning + overall appearance of north coast Javanese sarongs. Clusters of multi-coloured flowers layered over a variety of patterned backgrounds are common as are arabasques, foliated vines, rosettes + repeated blossoms on plainer backgrounds. Despite their Javanese inspiration, the prevalence of nature motifs + choice of colours contribute to a distinctively Malaysian identity.
