348 - Backpack mini batik
This cute backpack is made from a preloved Indonesian sarong, a large piece of fabric. Sarongs are often being wrapped around the waist for praying but are also being used as tablecloths and blankets. Fancy sarongs can also be worn on formal occasions. Batik is a fabric dying technique where hot wax is applied to certain areas of the fabric using a copper stamp or a special tool that allows small drawing before it's dyed. For every new color that step is repeated. While batik originated from the island of java, it is important and present all over Indonesia. Every batik pattern has a meaning and every region has their own batik print. The inner lining is made from recycled cotton uniform. The straps are long enough so it can be used by kids and adults. approx. 20 x 25 x 5 cm
