Traditional wedding bride dress displayed here is made with such an attention to details!

Check out the head piece. On her right is the original size, made from precious metals and pearls.

And here is the groom wedding suit. It seems he like to matched his hair color with his costume. What a taste!

But somehow the groom somehow looks pissed off. Watch out for that spears! :D

Indonesian traditional batik, especially from Yogyakarta and Surakarta, has special meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe.

Other regions of Indonesia have their own unique patterns which normally take themes from everyday lives, incorporating patterns such as flowers, nature, animals, folklore or people. The colours of pesisir batik, from the coastal cities of northern Java, is especially vibrant, and it absorbs influence from the Javanese, Arab, Chinese and Dutch culture. In the colonial times pesisir batik was a favorite of the Peranakan Chinese, Dutch and Eurasians

Certain patterns can only be worn by nobility; traditionally, wider stripes or wavy lines of greater width indicated higher rank.

Usually, during Javanese ceremonies, one could determine the royal lineage of a person by the cloth he or she was wearing.

Hope we able to preserve this beautiful art of Batik for future generation. Do you own any piece of Batik clothes? :)
