Therefore, mathematics is packed in a beautiful packed even people often wear this science, especially through fashion, it is kebaya. Kebaya has many shapes to be varied, so that it appears fresh and interesting, one of them is through the accents of art embroidery touch. This development can be done through mathematics that contains the value of art enchain, that is the motif produced by fractal.
Based on the description above, the writer delivers the idea to use fractal as an alternative in developing kebaya embroidery motif design entitled mathematics enchantment.
The problems of this paper are what can fractal be an alternative in developing kebaya embroidery motif design entitled mathematics enchantment? then how to design a variety of embroidery patterns as fractal kebaya entitled mathematics enchantment?
The purpose of this paper are to explain causes fractal likely to develop a design motif embroidery kebaya entitled mathematics enchantment and also to explain the concept of design as an alternative to the various development fractal motif embroidery kebaya entitled mathematics enchantment.
The characteristic of this paper is study of literature compiled through several steps; those are collecting data, synthetic analysis, conclusion, and suggestion.

The uniqueness and beauty can be used as an alternative development of kebaya design embroidery as an effort to preserve the culture in wearing the traditional fashion to enrich the national culture of Indonesia. Stages to make fractal as a kebaya embroidery motif design entitled mathematics enchantment are done through two phases.
Furthermore, it can be concluded that Fractal can be an alternative development design motif embroidery kebaya titled mathematics enchantment because fractal has a unique character that are homogeneous and nuance that gives new and promising alternative for the prospective development of design in the embroidery kebaya Indonesia fashion for the preservation of local culture to enrich the national culture, and also make fractal as a kebaya embroidery motif design entitled mathematics enchantment through two stages: drawing fractal on different types of media with the computer through the program FractalSharp; and realize the different types of image fractal a kebaya embroidery motif.
Finally, there are some suggestions that can be recommended for the kebaya developer and designers should develop fractal as a design motif embroidery kebaya entitled mathematics enchantment; mathematician should play an active role in developing the art of mathematics which can be used as a contribution for the progress of science, technology, and art; and the people also should participate to preserve local culture as national culture including the culture in fashion through kebaya which always develop along periodical development.
