The batik style is beautiful but so hot! Long sleeves in that temperature??? We went to a wedding in Semarang this summer and I borrowed a friend's so I could blend in but I think all the sweating may have given me away as a foreigner.

Or maybe it's all the "natural insulation" that Americans have that makes it so hot to wear...
I was astonished to find, in the local Trade Aid shop, the wood blocks for batik. I'm not sure where tehy are from, but they are very intricate and beautiful, and these are not the tiny stuff, but 10cm x 10cm or so, and some bigger. And I believe used. I just hope your crafts people are keeping all they need for their work!
very beautiful and well said! This is a very beautiful religion that should be shown more in the media - it has a good principle for living
