Crafts batik in Indonesia began in the era of the kingdom of Majapahit. At that time, its usage is limited only to the palace environment and is owned by royalty and the followers.

On a particular day, they are required to wear once in a week. Government action is get a positive response from the designers clothes, many designers perform fashion show with batik theme. The result is, a few months ago, dress with batik motif was booming in Indonesia. Many manufacturers produce release clothing that is issued with a batik motif, especially women's clothing. Hopefully not only the right but so...
