As you have to feel, we are proud of being Indonesian that have special character of various culture. Many ways to preserve our culture, one of them is wearing batik. We are proud of having this batik to be adopted as one of the world cultural heritages. By wearing batik unconsciously we get some benefits. First, we preserve our culture. Young people today indirectly have helped Indonesia to preserve the great cultural of this. Beside that, we also unite people in Indonesia by wearing batik. We live in differences from Sabang to Merauke, from Miangas to Rote. But because of batik, Javanese may be wear Sundanese batik. So even though we have different culture, we are one in Indonesia.
Why don’t we wear batik if it has many eases of it? Batik is easy to access or buy. It spreads everywhere in city side in almost every store. The price is not quite expensive as the previous time. Batik is also has many functions, not only for clothes but also for bags, table clothes, wallets, and so on. Batik is no longer identical with old people. It is now also present in various models and so attractive and interesting. It can be worn by everyone from child up to adult.
