Sooooo many varieties of batik in this area. From batik 'tulis' (paint by hands) to 'cetak' (printed by hands). From millions to only thousand rupiah in price.

Various batik for every age, very affordable price, and friendly sellers. Worth to come (again). Best time to come I think is during weekedays, because the road's not that much wide.

Some are very big and nice houses and some are small shops in the small lanes, but all of them are selling different items, since they made their own creations. The... More

But actually Kampoeng Batik Laweyan is more like a street with so many batik boutique.

Getting inside the Kampong Batik Laweyan is not that necessary unless you really are Batik mania. There are several Big and Comfy Batik Store outside the kampung and they got a good collection as well.

Surakarta (best known as Solo).is recognised as having Indonesia's best batik. Batik is a cloth made in a sort of ":lost wax" method. You can't get anything as authentically Indonesian as batik. Have a look around Kampung Batik Laweyan, but don't be afaid to compare prices and bargain.
