Batik Garut

Garuran Batik motif is indeed inspired by the natural conditions of the mountains, flora and fauna or by the everyday environment of Garut, especially before the independence period.
Garut batik consists of Bulu Hayam (cock feather) motif and Lereng Kangkung (kale slope) motif.
But nowadays, there is a challenge dealing with regeneration of artisans of the batik.
Some craftsmen add diagonal geometric motifs as accentuation.
In other words, they are not only focussing on Bulu Hayam motif. Sometimes, there are accentuation motifs in the form of flower that are given a bright and calm natural color.
