- This study discusses north coast Java batik as part of everyday lifestyle. The north coast Java (Pesisir) batik signifies multi culture and beauty as compared to Court batik with its philosophical meanings. Studies focusing on lifestyle as part of consumption have not been widely written. The use of batik then raises a question: How do people live their multicultural lifestyle with batik? This ethno-history study sees different civilizations and religions made important contributions in terms of motifs, colors, producers and consumers in four batik loci (Cirebon, Pekalongan, Batang and Lasem). Local climate, government's policy and UNESCO's acknowledgement also becomes important factors for multicultural lifestyle formation. The consumption of batik, however, shows users' fluid identity; after people's taste and preference.
