Barakaff Exclusive Batik

The tradition of making batik is found in various countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka and Philippines.

Batik culture is pretty much famous in Malaysia, and you can commonly see the batik clothing in boutiques or shopping malls. And if you have been following my blog, you would also realize that batik painting demo can also be spotted in most local event that I went too.

Kelantan and Terengganu is most famous for producing batik clothings in Malaysia, but if you are living in Klang Valley or is visiting Selangor, there is one place where you can shop for exclusively designed batik; Barakaff Exclusive.

Barakaff Exclusive.The boutique is located somewhere in a residential area around Jalan Gombak, Selangor and selling exclusively designed batik clothings. All clothings sold in this boutique is exclusively designed. The batik prints is hand drawn and painted individually, so if you’re to buy any clothing from Barakaff Exclusive and wear it to any events, you won’t have to worry about accidentally wearing the same clothing as someone else.

Modern dress with batik prints on it. Certainly look like something you would see on the runway. Needless to say, I bought a pair of dress for myself and a shirt for my husband. I just couldn’t resist those sweet pastel designs. It is not something I usually see elsewhere ; where the batik prints are usually in daring and bright colours. The designs from Barakaff Exclusive is definitely a refreshing addition to our wardrobe.

Barakaff Exclusive have plenty of modern and traditional clothing for you to choose from, and during my visit to this boutique, I was told that all the clothing here are made in house, and they have a workshop at the back of the boutique to produce the batiks that’s being sold in the outlet.

Batik cloth in the making. The process is definitely long and tedious one. Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique. Batik is made either by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting, or by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired.

But obviously, I’m no artist and mine came out pretty weird. But well, it is a wonderful experience regardless, to be able to visit the workshop and try my hands at batik painting.

    I like batik but hardly wear any…. I have bought some batik before though, and they are all from Terengganu somehow. But then again, it’s not as if I know how to differentiate the different motifs.
