    This paper describes an empirical investigation into the production systems and marketing strategies of a special type of textile, that of batik. The work is concerned with elements of garment manufacture, fashion, wearer comfort, and the characteristics of light fabrics. Evaluations of traditional woven fabric production and techniques, along with literature searches, were carried out. An industry profile is presented that includes aspects of traditional culture and fabric fashions. Computer measurements established precise characteristics influencing both clothing design and wear ability.
