On a tour of some of Malaysia’s unique products we stopped by the Daisy Batik studio, where they make beautiful hand painted sarongs, scarves, and paintings using an ancient technique. A man who works there walked us through the multiple step process of drawing designs with a mixture of wax and resin, dyeing, painting, coloring, stamping, and boiling just to make a single Batik piece of art.
He then showed us a few different ways to tie them! He went a little too fast for us to follow but the sarongs did come with an instruction booklet. Below I’ll show you a couple ways to properly tie and wear a sarong, Kuala Lumpur style.
Here’s some pictures of the city!
Kuala Lumpur is a rapidly growing, diverse city and I’ve really been enjoying my time here. Can’t wait to see another side of Malaysia when we visit Georgetown in Penang!
