Hi Mam, Firstly, could I kindly clarify which batik store did you go into? Many customers get confused with our shop(Sams Batik House) and Sams Collections(the shop at the corner). Our shop is not located at the corner of Chulia Street but located right diagonally...More

Very good service. But they marked up the prices at least 50%. Need to bargain down the price. You can do the alteration there Free of charge or rather, already charged into the selling price since they marked up the price? But I do enjoy...More

Easy place and accessible to find this shop. The staff is friendly and approachable. There are lots of variety of batik stuff to look at other than Indian costumes. Can bargain before paying. Good price they give.

My wife was quoted 160 RMB for a sun dress which she later bought at Fort Cornwallis souvenir shop for 28 RMB. Be warned. Better go to Batek Lah or Penang Batik Factory for quality items at realistic prices.More

Hi good morning, we have many big size kurtis available with embroidery. If you like we can even whatsapp some images to you and we can post it out. Postage to KL is around RM10-20 depending on the weight.

This is little bit tricky. As I can say , it depends how much you buy. If you buy more than 500rm, 10% discount is easy. The remaining is up to you and owner.
