Tuesday Outfit: Pink Batik Crepe with a touch of blue

Today I am wearing my new “baju kebaya” modern dress made out of batik Crepe Terengganu. I really like the design of this batik. It’s different than any other design and it’s one of a kind. The color combination of pink, blue, yellow, green, brown and white really makes this outfit versatile. Today I am wearing this outfit with pink shawl. I can also wear this outfit with light blue shawl and the look and feel will be different.

“Malaysian Batik is batik textile art of Malaysia, especially on the east coast of Malaysia (Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang). The most popular motifs are leaves and flowers. Malaysian batik depicting humans or animals are rare because Islam norms forbid animal images as decoration. However, the butterfly theme is a common exception. The Malaysian batik is also famous for its geometrical designs, such as spirals. The method of Malaysian batik making is also quite different from those of Indonesian Javanese batik, the pattern is larger and simpler, it seldom or never uses canting to create intricate patterns and rely heavily on brush painting method to apply colors on fabrics. The colors also tend to be lighter and more vibrant than deep colored Javanese batik.

In line with the 1Malaysia concept, the Malaysian government is now endorsing Malaysian batik as a national dress to every level of the general population, by having local designers to create new batik designs which reflect the 1Malaysia idea” source wikipedia
