Ornaments taken from sea creatures, reflects their profession as fishermen, flowers and birds which mark the influence of north coastal batik always exist in Batik Madura.
The influence of the court is also seen, which tell that the Mataram Kingdom once had its power to this area. Batik Madura is made for kain, sarong and selendang.
