Fashion Review : Batik From BeautiQ

Hi all ~

did I told you before  ,  Batik is one of my favourite apparel , during my colleges times ,   I ever attend a one day batik workshop , after that  i learnt how to draw a simple batik pattern xD 

Are you one of the batik lover just like me? :)  if your answer is yes ,  do check it out my first ever batik review ~! :D  

For your information, batik  is the combination of an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a creative medium. The art of decorating cloth which, using wax and dye method , has been practised for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made at there. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot. 

To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing / drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing  =)
Contemporary batik, is markedly different from the traditional and formal styles. For example,  the artist may  use etching, discharge dyeing, stencils, different tools for waxing and dyeing, wax recipes with different resist values and work with silk, cotton, wool, leather, paper or even wood and ceramics.
Read until here, i guess you already have a clear picture and better understanding about batik =) 

Recently,  I received a batik review invitation from BeautiQ  :) , a mobile online shop which mainly selling cosmetics and  indonesian batik clothing that can be sown as your personal styles. BeautiQ 's company slogan is  Empowering ASEAN beauties through batik and cosmetics.

    BeautiQ sent me a box with beautiful floral batik and mianiture lipstick gift  :)  

   Product details :

 A traditional batik clothing locally made,  it can be used as tied skirt, sarong or customize as skirt,       dresses ,pants or blouse :)  I found it will be ideal for tied long skirt . 

              i guess this components will be perfect match for my batik :)  

                             Red floral batik with  vibrant  colour  =)

  What do you think ? The tied long skirt look great on me :p  right ? it look slimmer from the visual  XD    it was such a lovely pieces , i love it very much ~ It will be ideal for daily occasion too :)  

 Cotton material is very comfortable , it even can apply to sensitive skin people just like me.  

Gentle reminder :  

Batik need handle with care ,it is  not recommeded to using any detergent to wash it . Alternatively ,
 I  can only using soap or shampoo as washing method . Furthermore , Batik should avoid directly sun light too, therefore I was suggested  by Beautiq to turn the pattern around to dry it under sunlight :)
