A Millennia-old art form – brought vividly to life.
Batik Popiler II is Bali’s foremost producer and retailer of handmade batik products. Over almost half a century, we have built an international reputation built on exemplary quality, creativity and reverence for this centuries old art form.
Batik Popiler II was founded way back in 1962 by Bapak (Mr) Wayan Matra and Ibu (Mrs) Made Tunjung. In the fifties, Ibu Tunjung was earning her living trading spices. Her work brought her into regular contact with farmers in remote parts of Bali who would always ask her for batik from the neighboring island of Java. Ibu Tunjung would make regular visits there, handpicking the finest examples including exquisite antique pieces, which were much more readily available at the time. Business went well and she opened a batik shop in Bali’s capital Denpasar – the very first of its kind on the island.
By 1976, the business had expanded considerably and much larger premises were found in Tohpati, just east of Denpasar. Ibu Tunjung’s daughter Putu Arnany took the reins of the business in 1983 adding bold contemporary designs and expanding into batik painting and different kinds of product like WHAT. Today, Batik Popiler II continues to set the standard for superior quality batik, with an equal focus on tradition and design innovation.
Not only can clients purchase beautiful batiks at the Batik Popiler HQ, they can also view many of the rare antique textiles Ibu Tunjung and her daughter have collected over the years and even gain an insight into the complex process of making these beautiful textiles by hand. Our revered reputation has led to many VIPs and celebrities visiting our HQ and purchasing our batik, including Lady Tina Green and many other renowned persons
