What is Sarong or Pareo?
The sarong, as it is called in Indonesia or pareo as it is called in the French speaking islands of the world, is a simple hand made, hand coloured, item of clothing worn by men and women. It is a large rectangular piece of material, which is wrapped around the waist or body and worn as a skirt/dress for women or as a kilt for men.
The sarong pre-dates sewing and as such was one of the first acticles of clothing adopted by many indigenous peoples from around the world.

What is Batik?
Batik is a material dying process which is traditionally associated with sarongs. A pattern of wax, which is resistent to dying, is applied to a piece of material and then different dyes are used to colour the material in between the wax patterns. There were few natural colous of dye available in ancient times, so most traditional sarongs are shades of brown in colour.
Traditionally different patterns of batik were used to identify social rank and royal lineage and some patterns were used to depict the concepts of the universe and the gods.
