Fabrik untuk Membuat Batik

Bila bercerita tentang fabrik untuk membuat Batik, apa yang paling penting adalah sama ada fabrik itu fabrik semulajadi atau buatan. Biasanya fabrik semulajadi lah yang digunakan untuk membuat Batik kerana sifatnya yang lebih reaktif / bertindak balas kepada warna semulajadi yang diletakkan ke atasnya. Contoh fabrik semulajadi adalah fiber tumbuhan dan fiber haiwan.


Apa itu Fiber Tumbuhan?
Kapas, rami, linen

Apa pula Fiber Haiwan?
Sutera dan bulu haiwan (wool)

Fabrik buatan pula adalah sejenis fabrik yang diperbuat dari campuran bahan-bahan buatan manusia (semakin hari fabrik buatan ini bertambah-tambah dan menjadi bermacam-macam jenis). Contoh fabrik buatan adalah bulu sintetik, sutera sintetik, kapas sintetik dan macam-macam lagi.

Sekiranya anda ingin memilih Batik yang berkualiti, bermutu tinggi dan tahan lebih lama untuk dipakai, eloklah anda memilih jenis Batik yang menggunakan fabrik semulajadi. Contohnya Batik yang dilukis di atas kain kapas (cotton) seperti batik sarung, kaftan dan kain pasang.

Anda juga boleh memilih fabrik untuk membuat Batik seperti fabrik sutera kerana ianya lebih cantik dan juga berkualiti tinggi. Sutera Batik ini terdiri daripada Jacquard, Crepe de Chine, Satin dan Viscose Rayon. Sutera Batik bukan sahaja cantik dan tahan lama malah ianya tidak pernah lapuk dek zaman sejak dari zaman Batik dari negeri China dihasilkan.

Walaubagaimana pun antara kapas dan sutera, pastilah sutera Batik lebih mahal, betul kan? Ini kerana sutera mempunyai sifat kurang menyerap warna berbanding kapas. Jadi, untuk membuat Batik di atas sutera ia memerlukan sejenis warna khas (yang lebih mahal) supaya warna tersebut dapat diserap dengan baik. Ia juga akan memberi kesan yang cantik dan kekal lama pada fabrik untuk membuat Batik tersebut.

Jadi, sekiranya anda ingin mengenal pasti sama ada Batik yang anda miliki adalah yang berkualiti tinggi, bermutu serta tahan lama, anda boleh meneliti sama ada Batik anda itu dari fabrik semulajadi atau buatan? Fabrik semulajadi lebih mahal, lebih lembut dan lebih selesa dipegang. Manakal fabrik buatan biasanya lebih murah, kurang selesa dipegang dan teksturnya mudah pecah setelah beberapa lama dipakai.

Oh, satu tips tambahan untuk anda mengetahui samada pakaian anda diperbuat dari fabrik semulajadi atau buatan. Fabrik semulajadi akan hangus apabila dibakar dan menghasilkan abu halus, fabrik buatan pula hanya akan cair apabila dibakar sehingga menjadi seperti butiran hitam (seperti plastik yang terbakar). Diingatkan jangan cuba tips ini sekiranya anda belum bersedia mengorbankan salah satu pakaian anda.:-)

Batik will be BIG one day in the fashion world

Last Wednesday I have read some articles and I have found something interesting about Batik. I have never met Nor Aini Shariff, but I can feel her and think the same way as hers. She explains how Batik is evolved and still maintains the authentic values of culture in the designs and colours of Batik. Various motifs of Batik also represent the evolution and it definitely gives a new breathe to Batik that can be wore not only the elders but the younger generation.

"It was almost 20 years ago that fashion designer Nor Aini Shariff began a trend. In those days, batik was hardly seen as a fashion statement or deemed as a piece of high fashion.
But batik has always been close to her heart. When she graduated in fashion design from Institut Teknologi Mara (now Universiti Teknologi Mara), she chose batik as her trademark.
To her, batik represents not only the Malay culture, but also her identity. Using batik as her core design, she won third place in the Benang Emas competition in 1994, organised by Jelita magazine. And she has not looked back since.
“Back then, few thought batik could be turned into fashionable, designer wear. Even my friends told me that there was nothing interesting about batik. The material was thought of as casual attire, not something to be worn to
