The design for all of the Batik Sarung were nice but ready made blouses needs some fresh designs, in line with current trend. need more silky chiffon like material. Price is reasonable and cheaper than other places.

Kampoeng (Village) Batik Laweyan is one of my favorite spots in Solo. it more attractive. But, one thing that makes this neighbourhood interesting is the Batik itself. Everywhere you walk, you'll see Batik. Yes, Batik is the highlight. it has been declared by UNESCO as Masterpieces of The Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on October 2, 2009. Thus, When...

Traditional Javanese Batik is not quite my style. I went there looking for a more modern design. I ended up buying batik for my mom. However it's quite an experience to shop there. Don't miss it since batik is so essential to Javanese culture.

For those we love Batik ( Indonesia traditional clothing), Kampung Laweyan is recommended. It opens from morning till 5pm something. There are many option stores to visit. Some prices are negotiable

I visited here 6 months ago, and just returned. This time we arrived at night, and almost all the batik shops were closed. So, just to add to my last review of this place - it is lovely at night. You suddenly realize that all those daytime shops are, in reality, ancient shop houses with wooden doors opening direclty onto... More

Nice but after have seen 2 shops I've seen enough. The service is great and people are polite. There are a lot of different items you can buy for a good price.

Every time visit Solo, always go to Laweyan. I found all kind of Batik from all price level. Batik Tulis is very nice. Better to get info before go there which shops/production house you want to visit otherwise need to go around the whole area which is not efficient.
