Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,
The new month, new hope, i hope for the best in every month i am given to this breathing 🙂 and this my very first post in this month, i hope it continuously gets active like used to.
This time i will take you to Danar Hadi Museum that’s still located in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia. Solo is one of the place in Indonesia you can meet some different of Batiks, although every places has their own style of unique currently, but you will find more in here, in printed and handmade. You can get to know more, the very first event about historical of batik through the ages, that until now to be one of our main heritage in Indonesia. This place is divided by some, in front, before you can get entering the museum, you will be shown the product of Danar Hadi itself, you can do shopping in here and i have to admit it, most of the Batiks are gorgeous! i think the prices are worth! then directly entering the museum after you have paid the ticket for 35.000 (in Rupiah) on the lawn, there’s restaurant too. Unfortunately when you have gotten inside the museum, you will not be allowed to take the photo, but you will, if you get the step on the making process, i just get really disappointed thing about this actually. As you get around, you will be accompanied by guide to explain the stuffs in museum, tell you a story from the very beginning of Batik until now.
You must be asking, why this museum was named after Danar Hadi, actually, this is not just the brand but it’s still related to someone that owns it, Santosa Doellah started the business in 1967 and the name of the brand itself was taken from his wife name Danarsih and his father-in law, then became “Danar Hadi”. So this place is absolutely legend from me, you can not only will find out Danar Hadi store in Solo, but also some big towns around Indonesia, but for the museum, in Solo just the only one.
And this is the making process of Batik,
Handmade, It is so detailed, sometimes it takes many weeks to be finished up, so that Batik Handmade is more priceless than in printed, and of course expensive. It needs to be done by the expert.
Printed, just following the molds that have been made before then sticked on the material with the same line.
It’s some of results and products you can find out in Danar Hadi, sold from materials until ready to wear.
here’s the address,
Thankyou for reading 🙂
