    Hey all, this time i'm bringing a little taste of my country (Indonesia) to Just Cause.

     In this mod, Rico wears batik, a traditional Indonesian clothing

     

    From wikipedia, for a little information:

     Batik (Javanese pronunciation: [ˈbateʔ]; Indonesian: [ˈbatɪk]; English: /ˈbætɪk/ or /bəˈtiːk/) is a cloth that is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique.............Javanese traditional batik, especially from Yogyakarta and Surakarta, has notable meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe. Traditional colours include indigo, dark brown, and white, which represent the three major Hindu Gods (Brahmā, Visnu, and Śiva). This is related to the fact that natural dyes are most commonly available in indigo and brown. Certain patterns can only be worn by nobility; traditionally, wider stripes or wavy lines of greater width indicated higher rank. Consequently, during Javanese ceremonies, one could determine the royal lineage of a person by the cloth he or she was wearing

     

    UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on October 2, 2009. As part of the acknowledgment, UNESCO insisted that Indonesia preserve their heritage 

     

    Now, every Friday, all Indonesians (students, employees) must wear batik.

     

    The batik in this mod is from Solo, a city in the Central Java province
