Batik Bogor

This is the pattern of Deer (from Istana Bogor where there are lots of deers on the lawn) and Bunga Bunkai (Amorphophallus titanum). Batik Bogor is all tulis (hand drawn) but the work is more simple and rustic, but the colour is charming. There are other patterns such as taro plants, agricultural tools and cloud rain thunderstorm, rafflesia, waterlily and others.
Batik Bogor is quite different from other West Java Batik and certainly very different from the post Independence Batik Indonesia.
