III Inspiration around me

Bodywarmer made by our neighbour Mientje (neighbour of my parents) with Batik most likely from Lasem (Java).* Batik Lasem is famous for its flower patterns with a strong Chinese influence. My mother wears this while working in the garden.

Updated 26-3-2021 * The fabric is printed, so an 'imitation Batik' based on the famous Buketan Batiks from Pekalongan
