The Pasar Klewer ("Hanging Market", a 2-storey department) is the best place to get original batik and, Pasar Klewer doesn't have as much rubbish as Yogya's big Pasar Beringhardjo. Children's clothes are unbeliavably cheap, although bargaining is obligatory here and if you're buying cap/imprint batik look over carefully for holes!

What to buy: Wanna buy the best batik (batik tulis), then you better visit the 2nd floor, ... that is if you can make it. It is execrably hot around hundreds of stalls which offer their ware, and the best things are less inclined to bargain, also on the 2nd ... Stumbling around see the colorful stalls, too ...

Try to get some striking "lurik" material, that is natural cotton, rough to the touch like Indian cotton but softens with age. With striped, colorful patterns, "lurik" is an hot item. And you might meet tailors who make custom-made clothes in one day! If you find the time they are fabulous!

What to pay: The Pasar Klewer ("Hanging Market", a 2-storey department) is the best place to get original batik and, Pasar Klewer doesn't have as much rubbish as Yogya's big Pasar Beringhardjo.

Off the west gate of Karaton's North Square, this old market selling all kinds of fabrics, predominantly batik. Other traditional fabrics are lurik (hand-woven striped cotton cloth) and tenun ikat. There are hundreds of shops jammed along narrow passageways. The visitors must be prepared to bargain. Batik cloths and garments, hand-woven fabrics, traditional and local jewelry, leather puppets, basketry, tortoise-shell accessories, trinkets, brassware and other decorative items, and all kinds of antiques are local specialties. Souvenir and art objects are available in all major towns of Central Java, mostly in the downtown areas and popular market places or shopping centers.
