I found the work that the team were doing very interesting. I did not realise the process was so demanding. They work so diligently and very neat. I was able to purchase the mens sarong which I have used on a daily basis now that I know how to wear it. I was grateful for the guide taking us to the factory. The weaving was very intense. If you like art you will appreciate the standard of work.

Its wonderful to view how the thread being designed and then threaded into a cloth. Also you can see how designed are made on cloth . The prices are way costly to buy but good place to visit.

Traditional fabric designs using wax, dying and weaving. You really get an appreciation for what goes into the finished product.

It is quite remarkable to see how fine and lengthly the process if making Batik actually is.... you have to appreciate the work that goes into it. It was lovely to look and see the fabrics and clothing items in the shop. I do find it a bit expensive, but for the amount of work that goes into it, it is probably worth It!

This is definitely worth a visit. There is a large collection of gorgeous colors of batik clothing and accessories. You can also have the process explained by a guide and watch the artisans at work. The only difficulty here is picking something from so many beautiful pieces.

We were shown how to make fabric and how weavers can make cloth with one ball of dyed yarn Brilliant work seen hand painted cloth and how it is made layer by layer.
Into the shop got Batik Shirt and other items for us and every other tourist you get a price and a reduction on your goods to make you feel better.
Go and see very interesting few hours.

They sell silk and cotton fabric in 2 or 3 metre lengths, so you don't have to buy finished clothes. I went in to get some silk, but came out with cotton; it was so beautiful. Such clear work and fine detail. I paid $60 for a 2 metre length of cotton. I appreciate how long it takes to make and didn't try to get bottom dollar. You can watch the artists at work. The cotton is good quality too. It feels mercerised but I don't think you could use mercerised for batik...?

Educational and appears to be very time consuming to produce. It a Batik Processing business. It shows the manufacturing of the cloth, the design imprinting, waxing the outlines, dying/ painting of the fabric.
Then the selling of the fabric, curtains, tablecloths, napkins, sarons, pants, shirts.
No pictures in the work area, dark and hot.
