I was told of this story of an exhibition of antique Javanese batik (from the various kratons) in Kuala Lumpur.

As you may know, authentic Javanese batik uses only natural dyes and thus, their batik has limited colour range.

The beauty of Javanese batik is the technique employed, the subtleties of its colouring and kehalusan of the craftmanship. You have to have a fine eye to appreciate it.

Many of our Puan Sri’s and Datins commented, ” Ehhhh, boringlahhh. Tak ada colour. Brown, black, brown, black. Pattern macam buruk jerr”.

Itulahh bezanya orang kaya dan orang berbudaya.
