Very nice batiks shopping at the Noor Arfa Craft Complex quite a few km south west of the city. It was somewhat confusing when we got there as where to go as the information/reception area was not manned at 10:20am. We wandered up the stairs and into what appeared to be a shop and were assured by the pleasant young women that yes, we were in the shop although it still is not clear to me where the Outlet Shop is - somewhere in KT city?? Watch the fabrics though - some batiks are imported from Indonesia (also beautiful but if you're looking for Malay batiks they are different) and some of the fiber blends are odd. The selection of 100% cotton items for women were few for the amount of product they had. Surprisingly the men's cotton selection was better. This is not just a tourist place, many more local women were shopping here, we were the only foreigners. If you join the Noor Arfa Privledges Club for 10RM you can get some good discounts on some items - for example one item I purchased was reduced by 50RM and another by 16RM - so well worth it. The women working here are very friendly, you can ask them for help and they are so willing to assist. Some have interesting stories to tell; a pleasant experience. But we still don't know where the Outlet was.
