Book Description
Batik is one of Indonesia's most highly developed art forms and occupies a special position in the country's history and culture. a succession of religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam), waves of colonization, (Chinese, Indian, Arab, Portuguese, Dutch, and English), and the development of a highly sophisticated culture in the courts of java and Sumatra which en-courage the supremacy of the Aristocracy, all left their imprint on the development of batik. In a rank conscious society, class distinctions were made by the type of textiles worn and their patterns many dress styles and motifs were the prerogative of royalty although the development of Indo-European batik led to widespread use of the sarong.
