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.
I know Malaysia has always been accused as a kleptomaniac-nation by Indonesia. Kononnya, kita nak 'claim'.
Of all things that we have might been accused of 'claiming', this is one I would like to clarify.
Seperti yang telah ditulis dalam Wikipedia, batik Malaysia dan Batik Indonesia itu berbeza.
Ada faham kah?
