Dig in 4 Types of Batik in Indonesia!
Batik is not just cloth, but Indonesian literature in every design and motif holds a million philosophies and deep meanings. Indonesia has a variety of batik that continues to be preserved.
Well, to coincide with the National Batik Day which falls every October 2, let's get to know the various types of batik in Indonesia! The following types of Indonesian batik are summarized from various sources.
1.  written Batik
Written batik is a traditional batik that is made by hand. The process of making batik is through several stages, ranging from preparation, patterning, batik, coloring, pelorodan and refinement. Interestingly, this type of batik has motifs that are rarely exactly the same because they are hand-made and mass-produced.
2. Stamp Batik
In contrast to written batik, printed batik which includes modern batik is made using a stamp. This makes batik can only be decorated with large-sized motifs. In addition, there is no streak and delicate motif in the printed batik. Meanwhile, making batik is started from preparation, achievement, coloring, pelorodan and refinement.

3. Combination Batik
As the name implies, combination batik is a combination between written batik and printed batik. This batik was created to perfect the printed batik which is only able to make great motifs and graffiti art that cannot be produced by hand. Extra preparation is required in making batik combinations. One of them is to combine written motifs and stamped motifs so that the value of batik art is equated with printed batik.

Meanwhile, the process of making combination batik goes through several stages. Among them are preparation, patterning (for large motives), batik (motifs that cannot be stamped), coloring, pelorodan and refinement.
4. Textile Batik 
The texture of batik has motifs produced by the textile industry by using batik motifs as textile designs. The process of making this type of batik is a printing system, so that the product is known as batik printing and can be produced in large or large quantities so that it can be purchased at affordable prices. However, given that batik is made in printing, there is no traditional batik specificity.
