Having enjoyed a renaissance in recent years on the back of support provided by UNESCO as well as the Indonesian government, batik is now popularly thought of as a must-have purchase for tourists in Indonesia and has increasingly gained traction in the high-end fashion industry as a style of fabric patterning of immense potential in contemporary clothing. Sarinah’s longstanding expertise as a retailer of superior quality batik has served as the foundation to its current standing as a leading supplier of this product to customers around the world. Working closely with skilled local SMEs and cooperatives, Sarinah is able to cater to rising global demand and successfully deliver one-of-a-kind batik products which feature distinctive patterns that are inspired by the country’s richly diverse cultural heritage.
Sarinah through its trade division exports a comprehensive variety of batik fabrics and garments deftly patterned with traditional motifs. As can be described in great detail to interested parties by Sarinah’s export team, each motif draws upon elements and ideas unique to specific provinces, towns and villages across Indonesia. In this respect, batik from one part of the archipelago can vary widely from batik from another, thus creating an unfathomably broad selection of colours, patterns and fabrics to choose from. Herein lays Sarinah’s true value as an exporter of this product; namely, its ability to tap into an expansive network of artisans to create a batik collection representative of all of Indonesia’s distinct cultures. More significantly, in taking upon the role of batik exporter, Sarinah furthers its dedication to serving as an engine of growth by providing local SMEs with the opportunity to reach new markets beyond Indonesia’s borders.
Always in-tune with the latest trends in fashion and customer demand, Sarinah ensures that its exported batik products come in a comprehensive range of styles, colours, and prints that appeal to both younger and older generations. The company’s batik portfolio therefore also includes motifs inspired by other cultures and feature patterns such as Fadat Block, Warli, and African Guifure. Sarinah is particularly well-known for its products that feature batik motifs on Indian-influenced garments such as Bandhan and Bandhej dresses.
International retailers interested in learning more about Sarinah’s selection of batik products for export are encouraged to contact the company directly through its trade division.
