Batik for the world
EVERY TIME a designer comes up with a batik collection, we wait with bated breath hoping that this would be the one to conquer the world and be as popular as the bright prints of Pucci or the eye-catching patterns of Missoni.
When Jendela Batik showcased its latest 2008 collection at the Jaguar car showroom at the Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, recently, it was the sleek style and shade of the latest Jag that seemed to have evolved and caught one’s eye.
The local label’s fashion creations, especially the flowing resort range in soft materials are refreshing in terms of design, print and colour but several others looked a tad familiar and lacked fashion vitality. Then again, not every single piece is banal.
The show began with a selection of batik outfits with a late 60s and early 70s vibe such as a catsuit with keyhole accent and bell-bottom pants, hotpants teamed with a blouson, and a long, button-up shirt dress.
These are all in bright crayon colours and prints that combined stripes and florals, abstracts and geometrics.
Interestingly, this range can hold its own; most of the attire are separates that can be worn with jeans, palazzo pants, skirts, white shirts and tank tops.
Style is strength in the next range of sexy power outfits. Designed for the sophisticated working woman, the line is infused with “eco-urban” motifs from Jendela Batik’s trademark Contemporary range of patterns. Made from raw and satin silks, the clothes, mostly in solid shades, come detailed with batik accents on the lining, ruffles and accessories like bags and shoes by Bonia.
In sensuous silk, chiffon, satin and organza, the brand’s evening wear features eight dresses said to have been inspired by the late Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. A brave and bold statement indeed but a select few are sure-winners and would probably have got the nod from Jackie O, a style icon in her time.
While the designs from this range are highlighted with hand-worked details like pleats, ruching and soft folds, it is the batik prints that are really exquisite. Unlike most usual batik motif that are often boring, with stereotypical latticework prints and tacky colour combinations, the ones from Jendela Batik’s evening wear look classy, particularly the abstracts.
One off-shoulder number in silk has a splash-on print in earthy tones that resembles tiger stripes. Another curvaceous creation with fishtail hem comes with a small Oriental floral motif in elegant, sombre shades.
Apparently, the patterns for the evening wear line have been extracted from the label’s signature Asli collection of prints. The batik boutique, located at Starhill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, actually has several lines of prints and colour tones for easier reference and, perhaps, to make it easier for clients who want to have their batik custom-made.
A laudable effort, for much of the beauty of batik lies in the fact that the technique of batik-making offers unlimited possibilities for artistic freedom, as prints and patterns are applied by actual drawing. What could perhaps catapult batik to coveted status is a print or pattern that’s distinctive and desirable.
Batik industry chalks up rapid growth rate
KUALA LUMPUR: The number of batik producers has grown by 40 per cent since the national batik movement was launched in 2003.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said he was proud of the rapid growth rate.
“In 2004, there were 324 batik producers. Three years later, the number has risen to 468. Similarly, job opportunities in the industry have gone up by 20 per cent from 1,915 people in 2004 to 2,318 this year,” he said yesterday.
Najib attributed the positive developments to “Malaysian Batik – Crafted for the World” movement launched in 2003 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s first wife, the late Datin Seri Endon Mahmood.
Endon, who died of cancer in 2005, was the former chairman of Yayasan Budi Penyayang (Penyayang).
“I am confident that the present chairman, Nori Abdullah, who is also Endon’s daughter, will continue to elevate and promote Malaysian batik.”
At the launch of the International Malaysian Batik Festival 2007, Najib said the RM50 million annual allocation under the Handicraft Industry Development Fund would boost the batik industry in the Northern Corridor Economic Region and East Coast Economic Region.
The International Malaysian Batik Festival will run for nine days, during which several batik-themed events will be held at the Esplanade, at Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
Also present were Najib’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Penyayang chief executive officer Datuk Leela Mohd Ali and Nori.

Thursday is batik day
PUTRAJAYA: Civil servants will now have to wear colourful batik attire every Thursday from tomorrow instead of having to wear them only twice a month.
Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan said a circular on the sartorial code, signed by Public Services Department director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam, was issued yesterday.
He said that apart from wanting to give Malaysian batik a boost by getting civil servants to wear it more often, the decision to have civil servants wear batik garments on Thursdays was “to make it easy for them to remember as to when they should put on their batik shirts”.
“We will see more civil servants wearing batik from now on and it will have to be Malaysian batik, of course,” he told reporters after closing a seminar on public delivery systems yesterday.
Sidek said that previously, the practice was for civil servants to wear batik to work on Saturdays and this was later changed to every first and 15th day of the month, beginning June 2005.
He said it was not practical for Fridays to be made “batik day” because many people, particularly men, would want to don traditional garments.
The idea of promoting Malaysian batik was first mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s late wife Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood.
At the launch of the Malaysia Batik Week in 2004, she emphasised the need for everyone to wear batik and not just civil servants.
True to Endon’s call, Abdullah has not only worn Malaysian batik frequently but has also promoted the Malaysian batik identity at international forums and conventions.
Cuepacs president Omar Osman welcomed the Government’s move to make batik the official attire every Thursday.
“We support the idea to create an original Malaysian identity through batik. I hope that the various departments and government agencies will create their own design,” Omar said. “The departments must provide them to the employees as batik attire will be our uniform every Thursday.”
On another matter, Sidek said Cuepacs’ request for the Government to pay honorarium in lieu of bonus for civil servants had not been discussed yet. He said he was waiting for the most “appropriate time” to meet with Abdullah on the issue.
