This is the place where I usually pick up my batik collections in town, save me hustle and bustle to move around to look for batik items when I need some.
I bought 2 pieces of hand-drawn shirts from the shop in Jalan Transfer a day before yesterday when I was in town.
Both hand-drawn and block-printed shirts are available.
I had a good brief but friendly conversation with James Lim.
Hope to have a chance to visit their workshop in the future.

Thank Les L

Bought more than several items here. Small boutique manufacturer with own shop on Jalan Transfer. Excellent high quality batik clothing, shirts, souvenirs, aprons and other textile products. The batik is more artistic, cheaper and generally superior quality to that sold at the touristy Penang Batik Factory or the clip joint Sam's Batik. Staff are friendly, helpful and not pushy. The owner is a gentleman and willing to chat about every aspect of his fine products. This is a must place to visit for quality souvenir and clothing hunters.

A very large shop with a wide selection of batiks. They seem to be a lot cheaper than other places in the tourist areas and definitely cheaper than the airport where they are nearly double the price.
The staff are lovely and there is not the high pressure selling that you normally get in these places. They don't follow you around- one step behind like in some shops.
Worth going to especially if you like batiks.

Reasonably priced shop with a range of purses, cosmetic bags, handbags, headbands, picture frames and clothing in batik. Different qualities of batik sarongs as well and very helpful staff.
