Tiga Dara/ Three Maidens is a batik from Garutan, West Java. It is believed that the pattern was made during its heyday of 1956’s “Three Maidens“, a classic Indonesian movie.
There are no rhymes and reasons as to why “Tiga Dara” movie is depicted with this beatiful cloudlike/blobby feature. Despite its origin mystery, the pattern itself enjoyed its success in its time.
Using jBatik, we want to revive this delighful classic pattern. We took the silhouettes and redraw its simple yet pleasant feature.
