Batik Priangan

Batik Priangan is a term used to identify the variety of batik cloths which is produced in the regions of West Java and Northwest Java. The word ‘Priangan’ is derived from the word of ‘Parahyangan’ meaning citizens of the heaven or the gods’ dwelling. Also, Priangan means the home of gods.

The word of Priangan is indicating the beauty of natural land and values in West Java. So Batik Priangan is obviously batik which is enriched with Sundanese culture, which covers the towns and regent areas of Cianjur, Bandung, Sumedang, Garut, Tasikmalaya and Ciamis. Unfortunately, only Garut, Tasikmalaya and Ciamis are still producing till today but relatively small production.

The fame of Batik Priangan is not as strong as Batik Kraton and Batik Pasisiran. Batik Priangan generally has the basic pattern of the ornaments if comparing to Batik Kraton. **
