2nd October 2021 marks the 12th anniversary of #Batik Day for Borneo culture (Brunei, Indonesia & Malaysia). The day is observed when #UNESCO recognized Batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2009. The traditional technique of wax resisting dyeing applied to clothes has the roots in the Indonesia’s artwork.
