As I was ironing my work clothes today – which is a pair of baju kurung, I called it Batik Tipu because it was just a printed batik lookalike, which I got it at almost one third of the price of the real hand printed batik, I wear them today because I woke up late and it’s not my practice to iron all weekdays clothes once on a weekend. (I used to do that but I woke up each day finding out I don’t like that pre-ironed clothes and ended up wearing something else) – I thought of the new arrival from Jovian M. Hmmm.
The sponsored post was on my Instagram feed – Jovian came out with a batik concept pairs with the “Batik Is My Soul” tagline. The issue is, I think that the design was too contemporary for me. Anyway, it’s not such a big issue.
The most popular motifs are leaves and flowers. Malaysian batik depicting humans or animals are rare because Islam norms forbid animal images as decoration. However, the butterfly theme is a common exception. The Malaysian batik is also famous for its geometrical designs, such as spirals
I need to feel the material of the batik. I don’t think it’s crepe (or silk/jacquar/brocade). Maybe satin or maybe just the same material of my batik tipu (which only costed me RM89). Hmmm. Maybe I’ll visit the outlet in Bangi someday. I think it is well-priced considering it’s from Jovian. HMMM. What say you?
and this is my batik tipu ( I miss the lighting at the old office)
p.s : Jovian is having cyber sale!
