for "a+" magazine vol. 8/08 august 2007
this is for independence day edition. If any of you have heard about batik being claimed and then patented by other country, it is true and i'm so dissapointed. While we have authentic proof from where batik really are from. And its MADE IN INDONESIA and BY THE PEOPLE OF INDONESIA. and its been our original culture even before the republic of Indonesia was born!
Let's love and preserve our tradition and culture.
Or at least, what's left of it..
