Batik For Malaysia

The government has announced that it is now mandatory for civil servants to wear batik every Thursday, both to support our batik industry, and to align with our current climate concerns. So first, we check in with a batik maker from Kedah, who uses a technique called eco-printing. Then, we open up the conversation to our listeners to talk about wearing batik and climate-appropriate office dress codes.
