Abstract

This article discusses batik innovations and the implications on batik existence in Surakarta, Indonesia. The focus of the problem being discussed is the innovation of batik production equipments that have occurred to date and the use of the innovation results in batik industry. The data of the research were obtained through field and literature studies conducted in 2017 to 2018. Field studies, in the form of interviews and observations, were conducted in three batik centers in Surakarta and in institutions related to Surakarta batik. Based on the analysis of research data, it was found that: The batik artisan community feels comfortable with the traditional batik production equipments so that it will be diffficult to be invited to use the new innovated tools. The batik artisan community is willing to switch to innovated equipments if the new innovated tools can really provide comfort or better efficiency than traditional batik tools. The innovation of batik production tools is more directed at the efficiency of the production process and not directed at improving in the quality of batik products.
