Unlike traditional batik – which reflects royal legacies and history – batik jumputan is a recent innovation. In Indonesian, ‘jumputan’ means ‘take a little bit’. Similar to tie dye or shibori, it uses intricate tying techniques to create interesting color gradations. A group of young graphic designers from Yogyakarta will introduce these techniques to create various motifs.

Tidak seperti batik tradisional – yang mencerminkan warisan kerajaan dan sejarah – batik jumputan merupakan inovasi terbaru. Di Indonesia, ‘jumputan’ berarti ‘ambil sedikit’. Mirip dengan pewarna dasi atau shibori, ia menggunakan teknik mengikat yang rumit untuk menciptakan gradasi warna yang menarik. Sekelompok perancang grafis muda dari Yogyakarta akan mengenalkan teknik ini untuk menciptakan berbagai motif.
