[PROPOSAL] Indonesia Batik Bounty for August 2022

Council members:






August is a special month for Indonesian, as Indonesian’s Independence Day happen on August 17th. If we talk about Indonesian culture, one thing on top of our mind is Batik. Batik is a traditional cloth dyeing technique that invented centuries ago. Batik is also recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2009. As one of the biggest Indonesian exports, Batik is a gateway to know about Indonesian culture.

To celebrate the Indonesian Independence Day, SvaraDAO will held a bounty for the best Batik design from you! Collaborating with Batik Mawar Putih and Paras, we will make a Batik design contest this month. In this competition, we will pick three best designs to get the prize and get the design make into real life Batik cloth.

Batik Mawar Putih is one of the most known Batik companies from Blitar, East Java. Batik Mawar Putih already exporting Batik to many countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Known for their uniqueness and exclusivities, Justin Holiday from NBA’s Indiana Pacers wore one of a kind custom Batik shirt from Batik Mawar Putih.

Paras is one of the top three NFT marketplace in the world. Made by Indonesian, Paras is already known internationally as a great place to get unique NFT artwork and soon audio. We collaborate with Paras because we want to give a glimpse of Indonesia to the world.
