We went to Danar Hadi museum, shop and restaurant again this year. Last year we did the museum in depth which is breathtaking. This visit was to have delicious Gado Gado in Soga restaurant and buy some silk batik. The shop is huge and the staff are very knowledgable. The batiks here are hand printed and machine printed. Everything is explained so you know what you are getting and the quality of the product. You are also paying for traditional designs.
There is nothing else like the quality or standard anywhere in the world so expect to pay high prices. I came away with exquisite silk robes for Aus $50 I think a great price. The lengths of fabric are incredibly beautiful. I would go here first for an education in batik, then you can hit the markets and shops and know what your buying. Much of the batik in the shops is machine made in china.
The whole complex is a beautiful museum complex and retail shop dedicated to the preservation of the history and culture of batik. Please visit and support this jewel of cultural history, wish there were more like it.
