This is another "must do"! I really loved to see how everyone was showing the detail working that completes a Batik garment. The ladies were working on lengths of fabric and the men that I saw were working on T-shirts. They will make you a T-shirt with your own design! Also the weaving of complex designed sarongs, was wonderful to... More

Our native tour guide, Gusti Wiranta, brought us to see this enterprise when we asked him to take us to a nice clothing store. Just outside the store, several women were using looms to create Batik fabric or clothing. Interesting to see. Inside the spacious retail showroom, we discovered the BEST selection of native-looking clothing that we saw in Bali.... More

See the batik process of applying paint to materials. Warehouse sized venue with cloths of all sorts. Quite beautiful art gallery upstairs with fabric paintings pinned to frames, all for sale.

Our Club Villa's driver guided us to the sub-classic batik factory in Denpasar Bali instead of the iconic Batik Keris outlet during the non-peak visitors' season. Though we were not able to pick up a few pieces of the classical hand-printed batiks, we ended up buying some men's batik shirts along with many hand-printed T-shirts and table cloths and pure...

We stopped here to have a look at how batik is being created and it was much more touristy than we expected. I would not go back

Batik factory offers nice things but the prices are quite high. Nice to see if you are passing around. Not worth for special visit.

Again in Bali not enough time taken by staff to explain the traditional methods. More focus on getting the tourist into the showroom to purchase. But it is beautiful material to see and some of the products are cheaper then retail in Australia e.g. scarf though wasn't sure they were made on the premises even though assured they were.

Sari Amerta Koleksi or Batik factory has a handful of workers spinning fabric by the side of a large emporium. Service is pathetic - the saleswomen are disinterested and indifferent. The clothing & souvenirs are much more expensive that what you would get outside.

It is interesting to be aware that Batik form of art is different in Indonesia from India. The only common thread is the use of wax to dye colors. But the printing and art form are distinct in each country. The factory also sells products made. It is quite expensive but we bought a few things as souvenirs.
