I wasnt sure what these type of Batiks are called, as it's not quite the conventional ones I know. Which are the printed version (cheapest), & the hand-drawn ones (most expensive). I love those hand-drawn pieces, as the details are really exquisite. However, the prices can sky-rocket too, as those are really works of art.
The boutique owner assured me, that these pieces are truly OOAK (one of a kind!) & I wont see the same design elsewhere, as it's designed by herself (or someone within the same business as herself) & "stamped" in limited quantity.
I bargained my way down to about half the price initially quoted to me (a must in Bali, although these were purchased at a boutique instead of the market), until I'm satisfied that this is a price I wont mind paying in SGD/USD conversion.
