Tourists may know batik as a textile adorned with exquisite patterns. But for locals, batik is a generations-old craft and tradition cherished in everyday life. Many Indonesians wear batik as a prized fashion item for formal and casual occasions, not only out of respect, but also because it’s beautiful and versatile. Here’s how you can wear batik, Indonesia’s traditional fabric.
Batik makes a great layer, thanks to its lively patterns. From formal blazer to laidback kimono cut, you can fancy a fashionable outerwear from your traditional batik fabric. Wear it over tank tops or plain shirts.
Simply wrap the fabric over a plain dress or top to make your outfit pop with vibrant colors and patterns. The ethnic feel will instantly transform a simple outfit into a more charming look with calming boho feels. You can wrap the fabric on your back with both ends hanging in front of your body, or tie the ends in front of your chest or stomach.

Batik and traditional kebaya top
The traditional kebaya top is probably batik’s most natural match. Kebaya is a traditional blouse from ancient Java, with ornate lace or embroidery. It is usually combined with long batik skirt or wrap.

Batik couple attire
Batik’s charm doesn’t only look good on women. You can make a man’s shirt and a dress or skirt with the same batik cloth to make a matching outfit for couples, or even for the whole family.
Beyond fabric and clothing, you can also find the traditional pattern in accessories —bangle, necklace, clutch, and more. You can wear batik accessories with modern attire as a statement item.
The traditional fabric is versatile enough to be sewn into all kinds of dresses, from maxi to mini and everything in between. With a minimalist and trendy design, the traditional batik can look much more modern, which is perfect for formal or even casual occasions. The lively colors of batik are also ideal to make avant-garde, extravagant dresses for your special event.
Batik boho pants
