    Your One-Stop Shop for Anything Batik
    Late review: I visited this hidden gem months ago to buy something local as a wedding present for a friend overseas. Emilia gave clear instructions on how to get to her batik studio and I was warmly greeted. In addition to purchasing the batik placemats + batik coasters, I also got a tote bag to pack them as well as a free batik greeting card. I was also looking to buy a farewell gift for a colleague at the time - decided on a batik silk shawl workshop to be claimed by the recipient. Lastly, I bought a cute batu Seremban set and Emilia even threw in a batik card holder to boot! Great service and highly recommended!

    Fantastic Experience and Appreciative of a new Friend.
    Truly a fantastic experience having barely known Emilia and yet she went out of her way to process and complete my order in the late evening as it was to be a gift for a going-away friend. I love all her design and colours, and so did my friend. Very appreciative for her effort and friendliness.

    An amazing experience. The best!
    This was I’ve of my favourite activities in three weeks in SE Asia. The batik was fascinating and great fun but it’s the interaction with Emilia that made it so much fun. She’s hilarious, warm and welcoming. Definitely no hard sell. Her work is astonishing and available to purchase at very reasonable prices if you choose to. I contacted her via WhatsApp to arrange a time which worked out really well. I paid when I got there (she also has credit card facilities). The studio is on the ground floor of her house so you feel like you’ve almost made a friend by the time you leave.

    Dynamic and inspiring
    Fantastic experience by the dynamic Emilia and her staff , e learned and experienced the hands on art of Batik and took away our own art works . She teaches individual and groups and knows her practice . More than that she knows people and can inspire others to free up their creativity! Her workshops are recommended.

Absolutely a great experience for our family. Aside from having the beautiful batik shirt as our souvenir. The whole experience of creating art piece together as a family is a wholesome experience. My teenage young man who love digital gadget find this a fun n memorable experience. Didn't expect it
But it's really an endless laughters moment, great art and most importantly the fabulous family time
And all these make possible with the Warmth and Humourous Emilia she is truly amazing character and we truly cherish this. Thx Emilia

Went with my wife for a batik class. It was just the two of us and Emilia did an amazing job walking is through how to paint with watercolors. I have no artistic talent but really love the piece I made. My wife loved it so much she bought batik tools to keep doing it at home.

Emilia is very knowledgeable about batik and other textile designs. She's been doing it for 35 years and is happy to share her knowledge. She was also really helpful in recommending a nearby place to eat when we were done. Ask her about local Malay hawker stalls!

Enthusiastic teacher with clear instructions. Lots of great designs to choose from. Was a very relaxing creative experience.
Be aware that it is a bit of a drive from central KL & in a private home.
