The village of Bobung


Not far from the village of Putat, in the Gunungkidul region, it is in Bobung that the authentic wooden batik mask is made. This specialty is a tradition of the villagers, who practice Topeng Panji (panji mask dance). They perform this mask dance each harvest season to express their gratitude.


Besides making wooden batik masks, the village also makes trays, puppets, key chains and many other items.


Visitors can experience the process of creating batik on wood in the workshops and browse other galleries of batik artwork.

Known for its hand-drawn Batik works, the village of Giriloyo has become a veritable Batik capital.


The village's artists are keen to share their skills with visitors in different ways. Those interested in learning more about Batik can gain insight by creating patterns on their own, using a canting (pen-shaped tool) to spread the hot wax onto the piece of fabric. As a souvenir, a small piece of Batik is given to each visitor.
