Travelling doesn't only mean going places but most importantly where your heart & soul implanted and you physically bring back memories from the place by having something from them. Indonesia is very rich in culture, but Batik is arguably the most well known form of art still continuously used by Indonesians daily. Batik designs and production techniques are so unique... More

When it comes to batik (Indonesian traditional clothing) and handicrafts, Batik Keris is the definite place to go to. The batik at the store ranges from traditional patterns to the very contemporary one. What I like is also the fit: they have both regular fit and slim fit, which is a style that I have been looking for throughout Jakarta.... More

I lived three years on Indinesia and this was the only place that I strongly recommend to buy typical shirts (Batiks), sarongs, artifacts, souvenirs, etc. They have many shops around Jakarta and the quality is amazing and the price not expensive (at the airport is a little bit more expensive). Me and my family had many batiks (more than 10... More

My local colleague was very generous with his time and money as he took me shopping for local handicrafts. I didn't want him to pay for all my shopping so went to the Batik Keris near my hotel after he dropped me off. There was a very nice selection and the staff were very helpful in finding sizes. They were... More

I travel to Indonesia at least once per year, sometimes twice, and this chain of stores has excellent quality and variety of Indonesian handicrafts. They are especially great for presents when you have a few million rupiah left over that you need to spend. Prices are a little high, but that is understandable at an airport gift store. However, BEWARE:... More

On the advice of my hotel concierge I went to the Batik Keris store on Jl Cokroamioto. It's a department store with the whole of the 4th and 5th floors given to batik and indonesian handicrafts. The choice is somewhat overwhelming - there must be 1000s of different shirts, dresses, scarves, sarongs, hankies, plain fabric. The gallery is light and... More

When you feel the material, you don't have to be a batik expert to know that the quality differs from those displayed on the sidewalk. They also sell coasters, vanity cases, children's wear, fans, and other accessories. The staff do follow you everywhere though.

I have bought items from the store at the CGK airport and also the one at Kunigan Square. The latter is a nicer store and less expensive, which should be no surprise. The items they sell are quite good quality and unique. Nice shirts, blouses, dresses and other items. They also sell t-shirts which are a popular gift item back... More

I hadn't planned a specific review of Batik Keris, but when I saw some clueless descriptions of it as a "small chain of stores which sell, amongst other things batik" whose quality is not "particularly good" I felt that I had to weigh in. Anybody who knows anything about Indonesia, and especially locals will tell you that Batik Keris is... More
