Batik Kaftan Crafts Shop

Updated on January 4, 2015

Batik Kaftan Crafts Online Store

Our online store specialises in Malaysian batik and handicrafts. The Malaysian batik is unique in which it is all mostly handrawn and therefore each design is unique on its own. In this regard, batik pieces may look similar but never the same. Our products are sourced from the main states producing quality batik products which is Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang which is known as the Eastern States of Peninsular Malaysia.

Our star product would be the batik kaftan as it is accepted globally compared to the other type of Malaysian batik products. However, we also strived to showcase other Malaysian handicrafts from time to time. This would include batik materials that would be superb as quilting material, batik and songket coin purses, batik bedspread for a tropical feeling, natural dye pandanus bags, Malaysian copper products as well as keris.

The Malaysian hand drawn batiks are handrawn mostly by stay at home moms taking commission to supplement their household incomes. Batik block design are usually done by men mostly elderly as the young generations do not care for the hot and unglamorous environments. While batik is still consider a thriving industries as there are demands from both Malaysian locals and overseas, the copper industries as well as weaving industry faced uncertain future as the handicrafts makers consist mostly of the elderly.

We hope you will enjoy a peak into these Malaysian handicrafts heritage.


Malaysian Batik Kaftan

The Malaysian batik kaftan is basically loose dress designed to generate cool floaty feel in the hot and humid tropical wheather. Usually armless, there are also design of batik kaftan with quarter or full sleeves. The usual length is usually ankle length but others are also available to cater to those wanting a more modern below knee or waist level kaftans. Malaysian batik kaftan is also fondly nicknamed by the locals, the "Baju Kelawar" loosely translated into Bat Dress as the dress has loose arm opening akin to the bat wings.

The Malaysian batik kaftan is mostly hand drawn using tjanting either on both side of the dress or only on the front side. The motive for the batik would usually be flora as well as abstract design. There are also many design available from the single drawn and dye (still multicolour) to the more complex one with multiple dyeing process. This is why its important for the first few washes of the kaftans, to ensure it is separated from the other washload to ensure excess dye is eliminated.

Fuji or better known viscose rayon are used as the material as it is more cooling and confortable as well as more affordable, compared the more expansive silk ones.
