Batik Sarong - Tube Wrap

This is how Malays from the early centuries had worn the Batik Sarong - just the sarong tied tube style at chest level & nothing else. Only after the arrival of Islam, ladies had become more modest and worn the batik sarong at waist level, pairing loose blouse or kebayas to cover their upper bodies.

For me, I quite like wearing the batik sarong this style fresh from the shower after a hot day at home. Cooling indeed!

Box Fold Batik Sarong

This is how we usually wear it when paired either with a comfy t-shirt at home or fancy lacy kebayas for special occasions.
