Technical University of Liberec
Batik is one of the original handicrafts recognized by UNESCO as Indonesia's cultural heritage. Therefore, this research aims to explore the development of good quality innovative Indonesian batik designs for Micro, Small Medium Enterprise (MSMEs). This is practice based research with data collected through observation and interviews. The result showed that the designs of Bakaran motifs contain elements of the Pati city history, Central Java, Indonesia. The making of batik motif in this research also went through digitalization process for the efficiency of making the next batik. Therefore, the international community is expected to determine the beginning and ending process used by Micro, Small Medium Enterprise (MSMEs) craftsmen in producing good quality batik. Further research needs to be carried out to explore the development of batik Bakaran designs using Druju (Acanthus ilicifolius) flower motifs.
