Workers completed batik cloth using natural dyes extracted from various parts of plants such as roots, wood, leaves, seeds or flowers in Sukoharjo, Central Java, Indonesia. In 2009 UNESCO set Batik as a world heritage of non material from Indonesia. Batik is a cloth that is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique. Javanese traditional batik, especially from Yogyakarta and Surakarta, has notable meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe. Traditional colours include indigo, dark brown, and white, which represent the three major Hindu Gods (Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva). This is related to the fact that natural dyes are most commonly available in indigo and brown. Certain patterns can only be worn by nobility; traditionally, wider stripes or wavy lines of greater width indicated higher rank. Consequently, during Javanese ceremonies, one could determine the royal lineage of a person by the cloth he or she was wearing. absence Architecture building exterior built structure Chair day forest Growth Hanging house land vehicle mode of transport no people outdoors Railing Sunlight Transportation Tree Tree trunk wood - material
