Batik fabric is an excellent gift to take back home, as it really captures the true heart of the Indonesian culture. Batik has been practiced for years and it is part of an ancient tradition. Some of the best textiles and fabric pieces in the world are made out of batik, which is testament to just how magnificent these pieces really are.

Cloth is decorated in a very specific way with the use of art and dye. Some items, which you could bring home, could be a beautiful handpicked batik scarf, a lovely throw or a magnificent batik pillow case.
