Many ask where this batik comes from? It turns out that this batik is from Central Sulawesi! Tesla Inc. CEO, Elon Musk, was one of the speakers at The B20 Summit Indonesia 2022.

Batik is a traditional Indonesian art form that involves gluing wax to cloth with dye and then coloring it in intricate patterns using wooden stamps engraved with floral motifs or other decorations.
Bomba Batik is a traditional batik from Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. This batik is made in the form of a square, with intricate patterns and colors that vary according to the region. The name "Bomba" comes from the word "bomb" in English, which refers to the bomb-like shape of this type of batik.
The process of making Batik Bomba begins with coloring the cloth using natural dyes such as leaves and roots. Once dyed, the cloth is then woven into a rectangular shape using a traditional loom called a tumpal (also known as a balang). This process can take days, depending on how complex the pattern is. After being woven into a rectangular shape, it is then cut into squares and sewn together by hand. The final step in making Batik Bomba is ironing both sides to ensure that all edges are straightened before selling or using!
