How To Use Batik in a Modern Way?

Good Questions

Q: I got this batik in Malaysia and love it, but have no idea what to do with it in my apartment so that it doesn't look too hippy-dippy (for lack of a better term). Should I frame it? I don't think just hanging it as-is will look very polished, as the edges aren't really finished and it is very lightweight fabric. I'm open to other creative suggestions!
