We enjoyed watching the artisans perform the delicate art of batik, using hot wax to design and dye cotton fabric in the traditional way. The factory shop offered an array of batik clothing, accessories and household items for men, women and children. All were of very high quality and reasonably priced in cotton & silk fabrics. So we combined a cultural experience with the opportunity to buy high-quality souveneirs to treasure in the years to come.

Wie überall auf der Welt, wo sich große Touristenströme treffen, verschwimmen auch hier die Grenzen zwischen der sehenswerten handwerklichen Fertigung von Batikstoffen und der platten Verkaufsveranstaltung von Produkten, die mit der "Fabrik" meist nichts zu tun haben. Diese Anlock-Strategie der Tour-Veranstalter muss man wohl akzeptieren ... aber man kann sich ja auf den interessanten Teil beschränken. So auch hier: Der Druck mit den alten Batikstempeln ist beeindruckend, das mehrmalige Färben sieht man dagegen kaum. Aber man bekommt einen Eindruck davon, was Batik ist und wie sie entsteht.
