Batik Banyumas

Banyumas has two kinds of batik, Batik Petani or Batik Pedesaan (= Village batik) and batik influenced by the batik from the principalities. Batik Petani has leaves and bouquets for its ornaments with background fillings of Batik Kraton as its main motifs, developed according to the taste of the local community and called “Batik Banyumasan”.
The soga color of Batik Banyumasan is between the soga colour of Surakarta and Yogyakarta, which is reddish yellowish brown, and its white parts look a little bit yellowish.
Batik Banyumasan is made for kain and kemben (= breast cloth).
