Abstract

Bamboo could substitute batik blocks for pattern creation as the middle and cross-sections of the bamboo stem structure (vascular section) spread across the trunk and reveal novel aesthetic values in batik pattern designs. This study aimed to evaluate the design pattern produced by Bambusa Blumeana (thorns bamboo) and Gigantocha Albociliata (honey bamboo) with Clive Bell’s and Roger Fry’s theory of formalism. Specifically, formal aesthetic characteristics relied on the art design elements and principles within bamboo stem structures through lines, appearances, textures, and diversity for a balanced, orderly, and harmonious pattern. Resultantly, bamboo as a batik block produced intriguing batik pattern designs, denoted an artistic identity, and determined the various trending textile pattern designs.
