It's already known all over the world. Not only Batik, but Wayang Kulit, Gamelan, Tari Pendet, Angklung and many many more long list of stolen Indonesian culture is also Truly Indonesian, thus Indonesia is Truly Asia.

At the New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/15/wo...iht-batik.html
Score One for Indonesia in the War Over Batik

JAKARTA — For Indonesians, it is a point scored in a long-running rivalry with their neighbor Malaysia: The United Nations has decided to recognize Indonesian batik as one of the world’s important cultural traditions.
After a run of what Indonesian nationalists view as Malaysia’s poaching of its culture, the announcement last week that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization would add batik to its Intangible Cultural Heritage list at a ceremony at the end of this month was especially welcome. To celebrate, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has asked all Indonesians to wear batik on Oct. 2.

“It is so important that the world finally recognize and acknowledge batik as an Indonesian heritage,” said Obin, one of the country’s leading fashion designers. “It is a part of our soul.”

But bragging rights to batik, the process of creating intricate patterns on textiles with wax-resistant dyes, is only one of a slew of issues — cultural, social and political — that have bedeviled relations between Malaysia and Indonesia of late. In June, things had reached the point where Malaysia’s defense minister felt it necessary to declare that, contrary to appearances, the two countries were not on the brink of war.

Indonesia and Malaysia’s numerous commonalities have often sparked disputes. Their historically fluid borders gave rise to populations that share both the Islamic religion and very similar languages. The two countries fought a real war over territory on the island of Borneo in the 1960s, and several conflicts over small, but resource-rich, islands and coastal territories continue today.

The most recent cultural squabble, however, is mostly one-sided. Malaysians, responding to a torrent of letters in Indonesian newspapers, say they are mostly perplexed by Indonesians’ strong reactions to suspicions that they are being encroached upon by Malaysia. Some young Indonesians, who refer to their neighbor as “Maling-sia” — “maling” means “thief” in Indonesian — have pledged their readiness to fight should war become necessary.

The most recent flare-up began with a song.

In early 2007, the Malaysian government began using a folk tune titled “Rasa Sayange,” or “Feeling of Love,” in its “Malaysia: Truly Asia” overseas tourism campaign. Indonesians, claiming the song as their own, began staging protests outside the Malaysian embassy in Jakarta.

Indonesian lawmakers entered the fray, and by December 2007, Indonesians were whipped into such a fury that Malaysia was forced to remove the song, as well as clips of dances that Indonesians also insist are theirs, from its advertising and apologize.

Relations were further complicated last May when a Malaysian naval vessel veered into the disputed, and oil-rich, waters of Ambalat, setting off another diplomatic scuffle and renewed claims of Malaysian theft.

Then there was the headline-grabbing escape from Malaysia that same month of an Indonesian starlet, Manohara Odelia Pinot, who claimed she had been tortured by her husband, a Malaysian prince.

The following month, reports that Indonesian maids in Malaysia were being abused prompted the Indonesian government to temporarily stopsending domestic workers there.

Anger toward Malaysia grew so intense here that the Malaysian defense minister, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, felt compelled to offer a guarantee that there would be no war between the two countries. At the same meeting, his Indonesian counterpart, Juwono Sudarsono, warned the public not to inflate small problems into major ones.

Tensions dropped to a low boil until a few weeks ago, when the Malaysian government was again put on the defensive over a promotion for a documentary series on the Discovery Channel about Malaysia that featured a dance thought to have originated on the Indonesian island of Bali.

Apologies all around did not stop the ever-present throngs of Indonesians outside the Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta from pelting it with eggs and rocks.

It was in this context that Unesco was considering Indonesia’s claim that batik is part of its distinct cultural heritage and worth preserving.

Protecting batik, whether from cheaper printed imitations from China or efforts in Malaysia to copyright designs, became a national obsession.

The Indonesian government stepped up its promotion of the fabric significantly in 2007, calling on civil servants and the public to wear it more often and enlisting fashion designers to find more appealing uses for it. Batik is now a staple in upscale malls and galleries in Jakarta.

Finance Minister Sri Mulyani has become known for her elegant batik dresses. Many offices in Indonesia now observe “Batik Fridays.” Applications to copyright batik motifs have intensified; currently about 300 designs have been copyrighted in Indonesia. Most of those claims were made since 2007, according to industry figures.

“There is no question, really,” said Ari Safitri, 22, gesturing to the centuries-old batik patterns inside the Danar Hadi Museum in Solo, a Central Javanese city famed for its batik, where she is a guide.

“Everyone always asks about Malaysia,” she said. “But I tell them that we are sure batik comes from Indonesia.”

Historians and non-Indonesian analysts question Indonesia’s claims.

“For Indonesians to claim that batik is solely Indonesian is to stretch the point,” Farish Noor, a senior fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, wrote in a recent editorial in The Straits Times.

“The post-colonial histories of almost all Southeast Asian states tend to over-emphasize the nation-state and its borders,” Noor continued. “This ignores the fact that the people of the region have long moved across the archipelago with ease, bringing — and leaving — their languages, beliefs and cultures.”

Malaysians, for their part, appear mostly perplexed by the Indonesian batik campaign. Jamal Ibrahim, a Malaysian, wrote in a letter to The Jakarta Post, “We heard about the controversy, but hardly any Malaysian has given it serious attention.”

Gunawan Setiawan, who sells batik made in a centuries-old workshop in Solo, brushed aside the controversy as nonsense, though he admitted he was happy that the squabble had at least sparked a popular resurgence of the fabric at home.

“Since the 1970s, the biggest demand for batik has come in the last few years because of this situation with Malaysia,” he said in the workshop, where women were applying melted wax in swirling motifs on lengths of cloth. “I’m not sure anyone can claim batik, but it’s been good for business.”

The craft of Indonesian Batik scores well in Europe and The US. The design is called Antik Batik:
http://www.antikbatik.fr/

Designer Gabrielle Cortese learned the craft whilst vacationing in Bali, Indonesia. She fell in love with Indonesia that she decided to settle for a while there.
Now the collection is sold all over the world, in particular: in New York at the high fashion retailer Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue. In Paris at the Galleries Lafayette, in London's best boutiques, such as Aimé, & super luxe dept stores such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Harrods.

SBY Mencanangkan 2 Oktober Hari Batik
Nograhany Widhi K - detikNews

Padang - Saat meninjau korban gempa di Sumatera Barat, Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) mencanangkan 2 Oktober sebagai Hari Batik. SBY meminta agar korban gempa juga tidak melupakan batik.

"Tadi saya lupa mengapa dalam kegiatan di lapangan ini saya dan sebagian menteri yang ada di sini pakai batik. Untuk diketahui, hari ini 2 Oktober, kita canangkan sebagai Hari Batik," kata Presidn SBY saat meninjau lokasi gempa di Balaikota Pariaman, Sumatera Barat, Jumat (2/10/2009).

SBY pun menjelaskan, Indonesia mengusulkan ke badan Perserikatan Bangsa-bangsa (PBB) UNESCO agar batik ditetapkan sebaga produk budaya dari Indonesia.

"Setelah mempelajari usulan Indonesia maka batik ditetapkan sebagai warisan budaya dunia yang berasal dari Indonesia," jelas SBY disambut tepuk tangan para korban gempa.

SBY pun mengajak warga untuk tak melupakan batik di tengah bencana, dan memakai batik tiap tanggal 2 Oktober.

"Kalau kita sudah mendapatkan, kita syukuri. Kedua, mari kita lestarikan, paling tidak, ini karena darurat tidak apa-apa, memakai batik tiap tanggal 2 Oktober," kata SBY.

Cara ini, menurut SBY, jauh lebih baik daripada marah-marah ketika produk bangsa ini diklaim negara lain.

"Karena itu mari kita lestarikan bersama. Agar kita senang dunia juga menjadi tahu. Tidak hanya batik Jawa, Sumatera, Sulawesi, Kalimantan sampai Papua," imbaunya.

Masih dalam Rangka Merayakan Pengakuan Batik Indonesia oleh UNESCO :


- "Solo Batik Carnival 2" menjadi Cover Majalah "National Geographic Indonesia" Edisi Terbaru September 2009.



Kirab "Solo Membatik Dunia" akan diikuti 10.000 berbaju batik, Sabtu 4 Okt 09 mulai Jam 15.00.


Kirab Solo Membatik Dunia digelar, Besok, 21 jalan bakal ditutup.


Solo (Espos) Pada 1998, sepanjang Jl Slamet Riyadi Solo pernah menjadi lautan api akibat kerusuhan massa. Namun bisa jadi, besok sore, Sabtu (1/10), tempat itu akan berubah menjadi lautan batik. Dalam kirab bertajuk Solo Membatik Dunia, sebanyak 21 ruas jalan bakal ditutup.


Ribuan orang berpakaian batik akan berjalan di sepanjang jalan utama Kota Solo itu dalam kirab batik yang dimulai dari Stadion Sriwedari dan finis di Balaikota Solo di Jl Jenderal Sudirman. Tak hanya orang, pohon-pohon yang ada di sisi selatan jalan itu pun akan dibalut dengan kain batik. Masyarakat di Kampung Batik Kauman dan Kampoeng Batik Laweyan telah diminta untuk memakaikan kain batik di pohon-pohon itu. Sedangkan para penonton diimbau untuk mengenakan batik dan ikut bergabung dengan kirab bertema Solo Membatik Dunia itu. Semua itu demi menyambut pengukuhan batik sebagai karya asli Indonesia warisan budaya dunia oleh UNESCO, Jumat (2/10) ini.
“Besok, semua elemen masyarakat diharapkan ikut kirab. Dari instansi pemerintah, swasta, perbankan dan sebagainya. Tidak hanya berbaju batik, mereka juga diharapkan mengenakan aksesori batik, baik itu umbul-umbul, selempang, ikat kepala atau apa saja,” ungkap Kepala Dinas Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata (Disbudpar) Purnomo Subagyo, dalam konferensi pers di Balaikota, Kamis (1/10).

Selain orang berpakaian batik, kata Purnomo, dalam kirab itu juga akan ada penampilan Paskibra, drumband, perkusi, gamelan corobalen dan siswa sekolah-sekolah. Semuanya mengenakan batik. Sementara di panggung kehormatan di depan Wuryoningratan akan ada fashion show dan pencanangan pelajaran membatik sebagai muatan lokal di sekolah. Salah satu panitia, Quinta menambahkan, semua peserta diharapkan menampilkan kreativitasnya. Sementara anggota panitia lainnya, Heru Mataya mengatakan, kirab itu melibatkan sejumlah perancang busana dan komunitas kesenian, agar ada variasi dalam barisan kirab.

Di sisi lain, untuk mengamankan jalannya kirab, Dinas Perhubungan (Dishub) akan menutup 21 titik jalan yang berhubungan dengan Jl Slamet Riyadi, dan mengerahkan 98 personel untuk disiagakan di 36 titik. Sebagai ganti penutupan jalan itu, beberapa ruas jalan yang biasanya hanya satu jalur akan dibuat dua jalur. Misalnya, di Jl Radjiman dari Bunderan Baron sampai Pasar Kembang kendaraan boleh ke arah timur. Sedangkan dari Gendengan ke selatan yang semula tidak boleh dimasuki kendaraan roda empat, besok akan diperbolehkan. “Untuk parkir, penonton bisa menggunakan ruas-ruas jalan yang ditutup,” ujar Kabid Lalu Lintas Dishub, Baskoro.









Membalut Kereta Fedeer Solo-Wonogiri dengan Kain Batik.

---------------
KA feeder Solo-Wonogiri ikut bergaya dalam balutan batik.

By aniexwatya on 2 Oktober 2009 | 20:46.

Solo–Kalau Pemerintah Kota (Pemkot) Solo berencana menggelar kirab batik dengan melibatkan 10.000-an orang berpakaian batik dari Stadion Sriwedari menuju Balaikota, Sabtu (3/10) sore besok, untuk menyambut pengukuhan batik sebagai karya asli Indonesia warisan budaya dunia, maka lain lagi yang dilakukan sekelompok orang ini.

Diprakarsai oleh Mayor Haristanto dari Republik Aeng-Aeng, mereka membalut kereta api (KA) feeder jurusan Stasiun Purwosari-Wonogiri dengan kain batik. Belasan potong kain batik dibalutkan di sisi kiri, kanan, hingga ke atap bagian luar salah satu gerbong kereta pengumpan tersebut. Sementara di gerbong yang satu lagi dipasang spanduk dengan tulisan utama Batik the Heritage of Indonesia dan tulisan pendukung Pengukuhan Batik Sebagai Warisan Budaya Dunia oleh UNESCO.

Ya, betul. Pemasangan kain batik dan spanduk itu merupakan salah satu cara yang dilakukan sekelompok masyarakat itu untuk mengekspresikan rasa senang dan bangga mereka terhadap pengukuhan batik sebagai warisan dunia.

Pemrakarsa acara, Mayor Haristanto, dalam keterangan pers yang diterima Espos di sela-sela pemasangan kain batik pada KA <I>feeder<I> di Stasiun Purwosari, kemarin mengungkapkan, pemasangan batik pada KA jurusan Solo-Wonogiri itu akan dilakukan selama dua hari, Jumat-Sabtu (2-3/10).

“Kegiatan ini dilakukan sekaligus untuk memenuhi imbauan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono agar seluruh warga negara Indonesia mengenakan batik pada 2 Oktober. Penambahan satu hari tanggal 3 Oktober untuk ikut menyemarakkan penyelenggaraan kirab batik yang digelar Pemkot dari Stadion Sriwedari menuju Balaikota,” jelas Mayor.

Di sisi lain, meski sempat terlambat dari jadwal keberangkatan karena harus menunggu selesainya pemasangan kain batik itu, Pengawas Operasi PT KA Daerah Operasi (Daops) VI Yogyakarta, Wahyuono Yuli P mengatakan, hal itu tidak mengganggu perjalanan penumpang kereta itu.

“Ya memang mengakibatkan keterlambatan. Kereta yang datang dari Jakarta juga kebetulan belakangan sering terlambat. Jadi tidak masalah, karena kebanyakan para penumpang dari Jakarta itulah yang jadi penumpang feeder,” ujar Wahyuono.

Salah satu penumpang KA feeder, Bambang, saat ditemui mengakui memang tidak merasa terganggu dengan keterlambatan jadwal keberangkatan itu. Dia memaklumi alasan keterlambatan itu karena untuk memasang batik. Dia justru mengaku senang dengan adanya kegiatan itu.

“Saya senang dan bangga melihat kepedulian orang-orang itu. Sampai rela bersusah payah membalut gerbong kereta api dengan kain batik,” ujar dia.

Bedanya.. kalo songket kan benangnya dari benang emas dan memiliki motif tersendiri plus kain songket lebih tebal dari pada kain Batik Palembang Harga Batik-nya relatif yang di cap tentunya lebih murah dibandingkan yang menggunakan canting.

Indonesian Batik is Taking The Milan, New York, Paris Fashion World By Storm!

Several designers combined the exotic East with modern Europe. Apparently, Tenun Ikat and Batik raised the stage in Paris. The show was a major success, Dries Van Noten received big appreciation and standing ovations from mode perpetrators. Not because of the rain, Fergie, or the supermodels, but because of his chic avant-garde collection incorporating Batik and Tenun Ikat for men.

It was raining, when famous fashion house, Dries Van Noten launched the 2010 Spring Summer Men Collection at the Palais de la Bourse last June. But the show must go on! Accompanied by sexy voice of Fergie of Black Eyed Peas (and of course the rain), the model still continued to rock the stage.

And, last month Dries Van Noten has launched his 2010 Spring-Summer Women Collections and appropriately named it JAVA ROYAL BATIK. A lot of the pieces were actually woven in Indonesia to maintain the authenticity of Indonesian batik design.




Other famous designers on similar trends are New York's Michael Kors who launched his 2010 Resort Collections by using batik prints, built-in sarongs, and bamboo satin; Milan Fashion House Versace also launched her collections inspired by tie-dye Sasirangan; and Lela Rosa with her outstanding ghostly batik. Not to mention the Paris-based Antik Batik couture design by Gabrielle Cortese inspired by her stay in Indonesia where she learned the craft. Her collections can be found at New York's Barneys, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue; and all across Europe: Paris, London, Milan, notably Harrods, Harvey's, Galleries Lafayette.

Not only Indonesian Batik status has been elevated into the high fashion crème de la crème runway catwalks of the world, its design has also been a regular fixture amongst A-list Hollywood stars such as Jessica Alba who has rocked the Indonesian Batik. Here's Jessica wearing a Jogjanese Parang Batik at the Step Up event:
