You may think that you owned a batik clothes while its actually just a printed batik motif clothes. From the explanation of the actual ancient batik making process, you going to see that the price cannot be so cheap after all.
The overwhelming number of batik motif on the market may also blinds us of the batik history itself, because it has so many influences. Javanese kingdoms descendant of Mataram may claims they are the art center of batik; however the rivalry between the Yogyakarta and Surakarta has made a complex variation of batik motif.
Thus the existence of Danarhadi batik museum (with its knowledgeable tour guide) has enlightened me on pieces of this history. However, no picture taking allowed. Mamamia.
