Besides, the Batik Expo 2011 is also expected to be a special attraction for all public elements in the region to love local typical products being developed nowadays.
"Honestly speaking that such an expo is rarely organized by business makers here, and therefore the local people this time are expected to get familiar with the local typical batik that we are going to promote," Ruhani said.
He said the prices of the high quality batik were affordable because it would range from Rp50,000 to Rp200,000 per piece.
