Batik is best known as an Indonesian heritage in textiles and a millennia-old art form. The founders, designers and the manufacturing staff at Popiler Batik have brought this art form to life since the early 60s.

Some of the most beautiful batik products in the world can be traced back to its design and production facility east of Denpasar. Here, designers hailing from Java and Bali work extensively on handmade pieces.

Batik Popiler gradually developed an international clientele, following its reputation for quality, creativity and admiration for this centuries-old art form.

From humble beginnings, Balinese couple Wayan Matra and Made Tunjung opened a batik shop in the capital city of Denpasar in 1962.

The business expanded considerably and their second shop was opened in Tohpati, where their daughter, Putu Arnany, took the over business reins in 1983.

Arnany noticeably added bold contemporary designs and expanded their collection into batik paintings and a wide variety of products such as tabletop and household interior items.

Today, Batik Popiler II continues to set the standard for superior quality batik, with an equal focus on tradition and design innovation.

Good to Know about Popiler Batik II

Visitors to the Popiler Batik's headquarters can purchase beautiful batiks in their textile forms for subsequent tailoring, or find a right fit through a collection of clothing items for men, women and children.

The range features shirts, wraps, and traditional kebayas for women. Many items among the vast collection include rare textiles the family have collected over the years.

Visitors may gain insight into the complex process of making these beautiful textiles by hand, and can also tour the rear section of the warehouse.

Here a crew of batik designers, and ladies focused on their work of applying wax to intricate patterns, can be viewed.

Also fascinating are the old, traditional tools - on display and still in use - from square metal prints called ‘tjap’ to the more manual processes through wax applicators known as ‘tjanting’.
