In our research for writing this article we encountered differences for the names of the various Jambi batik designs. We obtained multiple lists of designs from books and museum records, but the lists didn’t always agree. There doesn’t seem to be one authority that can say, “Yes, this batik design is called a ….” For the most part the people and lists did agreed, but there are still about five designs we’re still uncertain about.
We are very grateful to the many people who assisted us in obtaining this information. Mr. Agus Rianto, of the Sanggar Batik & Kerajinan Store, went out of his way to help us obtain many of the below pictures. Others who assisted us were from stores listed on our post titled: “Shopping in Jambi.”
