Batik to be exhibited across Indonesian embassies

In an attempt to introduce batik to the international market, Sodikin, Owner, Batik Mangkoro, intends on reprinting 1001 batik motifs in different colours other than black, white and red.

Talking about his plans, as finalised with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sodikin says, “Leader of the Sidiq Management of Yogyakarta asked for my work so that it can be exhibited at Indonesian embassies around the globe.

So in order to save processing time, I designed a production unit that will print 1001 batik motifs. This production will be carried out by placing a master in the screen, above the wax fabric, so as to create the effect of handmade batik motifs, for which I need primisima cotton fabric, which is 1.15 metres wide and 4 metres long.”

Sodikin continued, “Hand created batik motifs take longer time for production as compared to machine, and if the figure is 1001, then the time taken will be too long. In that time I can produce innumerable batik motif fabrics for sale across my outlets in Yogyakarta and Solo.”

To create interesting batik motifs, Sodikin needs primisima cotton fabric, which is 1.15 metres wide and 4 metres long.
