This is a very unique, genuine men’s Batik Long Sleeved Shirt made in Bandar Lampung in the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. True Batik is made from a special technique that involves beeswax, vegetable dyes, and special tools applied by hand. There are many types of Batik but the easiest way to identify genuine Batik is to look at the inside of the article or material. If it is faded on the inside, it was simply printed by a machine in mass. True Batik has no reverse, it is the same on both sides equally.
Sumatran Batik is different than the many designs from the other islands of the archipelago of Indonesia.
Oftentimes, Batik is signed by the original maker. This Batik was tailored by Acen and his tag is present along with the address of his shop in Bandar Lampung, Sumatra. Quality Batik is lined in silk, or premium satin and it will have significant weight as compared to inferior articles that use the name. Also, each genuine Batik material is unique to itself, none are identical. Genuine Batik is also much more expensive than mass-printed items.
The rich colors of this beautiful Batik really set it off. Featuring birds in symbolic art in the colors of Burgundy, Light Grey, Dark Grey, and Black in patterns that are perfectly symmetrical. Carefully tailored, it is a one-of a kind and will leave no doubt of its elegance. It is from a family collection and it is in pristine condition.
It has a three slip pockets up front with six hidden buttons up front with 4 ½” slits on the side. The measurements I will provide to give you the best indication of its size.
At the shoulders, it is 20” across. The length from the top of the collar to the bottom is 28” long. The sleeves from the shoulder are 25” long. Under the arms it measures 23” across which give it a chest size of 46” and that makes this shirt in the Medium/Large size.
If you wish more precise measurements, I will be more than happy to give them as I want this gorgeous shirt to fit.
A nice genuine Batik shirt that will surely impress.
