Good impression of how batik is incorparated in Solo lifestyle. The Putra Laweyan shop and workshop is just splendid, the people are patient and helpful, English is poor though. The workshop is the most beautiful I saw.

I love strolling around the little alleyways in this kampung. Shopping for batik and sipping a cup of coffee in an old serving style at the Batik Putra Laweyan.

to be honest, I dissatisfied with those batik motif displayed at stores along Laweyan main street and alleyway, they mostly display and selling modern batiks while I preferred the oldskul motif and therefor I recommend for those who seek "batik lawasan" to explore the batik home factory as those home industry offers you lower price than you see on stores....
