Mandela's love for Indonesian batik shirts

Mandela was one of the first world leaders to wear the traditional shirts at formal occasions worldwide.

    Nelson Mandela's legacy will be remembered well beyond Africa's borders.

    Many Indonesians, for example, remember him as the man who taught them to make peace. But there is one other thing Indonesians remember Mandela for: his love of traditional shirts known as "batik".
