Batik

I would bring batik Terengganu as my souvenir from Malaysia.

Batik is this beautiful fabric which could be found in almost every home in Malaysia in the 80’s and maybe even now.

The Malaysian Batik has larger prints while the Indonesian Batik has tighter smaller prints.

It is a fabric with versatile use in my opinion. It could be turned into a high fashion garment or as a humble rug. Many families used it to wrap their babies and as cradle sheet.

It is so close to our hearts that we forget the beauty of it sometimes.

Hope my friends in US would like this 2meter colourful cotton fabric
