“Cotton Batik”
Review of Jalan Sulawesi

Ranked #30 of 165 things to do in Denpasar
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This was my second trip to Jalan Sulawesi. Locals said there was nowhere in Denpasar to buy fabric other than the tourist sites where drivers take you automatically. But if you want what Europeans, Americans and Australians quilt with batik coton cap, you need to go to Madju right across from the traditional market at the end of the street. $2.50/metre and it's a large selection. I filled a small suitcase this trip!

This place is quite full on.... Firstly they have different prices for locals and foreigners so I suggest you really try and barter them down a little..A lot of the stores have the same fabrics and its a matter of finding the best price.. I cant tell you how many times I have bought some fabric thinking I'd stumbled across something new only to find it cheaper several shops down.. It can get very overwhelming as there are so many shops all looking the same. I have only now become familiar with the area and found my favourites to deal with.. Good luck!!

The dishonesty of prices are outrageous. As someone said, "they hunt like a pack of dogs". I was circled by 6 women telling me this was high quality fabric and hence purchased it. They were relentless and more women appeared to support them. I found out it was cheap poor quality fabric... BUT too late as Id already bought it. Unfortunately westerners are real targets. Be VERY cautious.

You can find whatever fabric you want at a very reasonable price, right in the heart of Denpasar across from the big market Pasar Badung..
