The MATA Team got to see many Malaysia batik samples and the process of batik-creation when we went to the Cherating Cultural Complex near Cherating Beach in Pahang.
The Cherating Cultural Complex can be reached by turning into Cherating Beach after its signboard. Drive pass the many accommodations (resorts, chalets) and shops lining the beach until you reach the end of the road where you can see the sign that says Cherating Cultural Complex.
Batik is very famous in Malaysia and other South East Asian countries. Batik can be made into clothing, become the material for purses, hats, caps, pencil cases, curtains, table cloths and many other items.
From the photos below, you can see Encik Ayam of the Cherating Cultural Complex demonstrating how to make a simple Malaysia batik piece. This demonstration took only 30 minutes.
