i found many crafts and batik products are not local made, is more like trading company and bring in goods and sell high price, giving commission to tour guides

Thank you for your visit. All of our batik is handmade and every piece is a master piece.

It's interesting to see a handful of artists working on batik with wax and paint, but the factory and workshop are clearly set up to attract customers for the enormous shop selling batik products and other souvenirs.
