About Indonesian Batiks

After college I spent a few years traveling around Asia and South East Asia. While visiting Indonesia I fell in love with the people, art, and culture of the region. It was here in Indonesia where I took my first Batik class in 1982. I purchased several Batik Art Paintings and returned to the US to sell at street fairs. I knew I wanted Indonesia to be part of my life forever, and so in 1984 my company Indonesian Batiks was launched.

  Fast forward 32 years and now I run an online wholesale/ retail business that offers more than 700 different Batik Art Paintings, 1000's of yards of Batik Fabrics in Cotton, Rayon, and Knit, as well as numerous garment and quilting patterns. Batik is my passion and staying connected with friends in Indonesia brings me great joy in my life.   At Indonesian Batiks it is our mission to provide you with access to Batik Art and Batik Fabrics created by Indonesian artists. It is our way of keeping alive an ancient art form, which is part of a vibrant and beautiful culture. At Indonesian Batiks we work directly with the artists and are pleased to offer their high-quality batiks to you. It is our way to help the artists show their work and offer it to you at a reasonable price.
