Souvenirs from Indonesia
Souvenirs from Indonesia are a fantastic way to memorialize your vacation in this tropical getaway. You are spoiled for choice in the variety of arts and crafts created by the citizens. An intricate kite, made from paper, silk and light wood, can be found representing mythological figures or animals, and make a fantastic memento for the young at heart. Batik printed fabric is made into sarongs, house linens, and hammocks that will add a tropical touch to a home, or a carving of a local god or goddess could bring good luck to the recipient. Baskets and mats are woven from grasses, roots and leaves that grow in the Republic of Indonesia, and are available in a plethora of colors and styles. Wooden bowls and tableware are useful Indonesian souvenirs, but nothing could compete with brightly printed postcards, lovely beaded key chains, and refrigerator magnets for being ideal trip memorabilia.
