TRIBUNBATAM.id - Batik doesn't belong for only one area in Indonesia.

Its existence is a pride in each region that raised it, including Jambi which has its own batik characteristics.

Jambi batik activist and owner of Azmiah Batik House, Bagus Priyono said, the development of batik in his area had several versions.

The thirteenth-century hypothesis, for example, could not be separated from the Pamalayu expedition in which Raja Singasari, Kertanegara, sent aid troops to the Malay Kingdom.

Meanwhile, according to Bagus, the Batik Jambi book that he wrote was marked by the tomb of the Pakubuwono III Family in 1787 in Lubuk Landai Village. 

Pakubowono III is said to have migrated with his family and followers from Central Java with the batik makers.

"However, (Jambi batik) began to be produced in the 18th century."

"Some immigrants from Java, such as Jogja, Solo and Demak moved there and introduced the batik tradition (to) Jambi ," Bagus said some times ago.

Jambi batik motif, according to Bagus, is simpler. Some motives that are commonly found are Ceplok and Bulat.

These motifs do not appear by themselves. According to Bagus, so far Batik Jambi has been influenced by a number of elements - India, China, Java, and Islam.
