The Batik day website, www.batikday.com, is really starting become an interesting platform for Batik. See also this interview with Indonesia's Minister of Tourism and Culture Mari Elka Pangestu. The interviewer Shinta Dhanuwardoyo is wearing a beautiful sarong by Iwan Tirta. Maybe Batik is no longer a forgotten industry, but is starting to become a blooming business again!

Saturday I try to visit the exhibition 'Gold from Java - Silver from Batavia' at the Gemeentemuseum in Den Haag, looking forward to it, I'll keep you posted!
