Visitors can hunt clothes to fashion accessories at this year’s event. And we visited this event last week! we must say, it was the best place to look for Batik designs, as we uncovered many local designers that showcases their batik work in form of clothing and accessories with seriously different and unique designs. That you probably can’t find in shopping malls! Let’s take a look of last week highlight at INDOCRAFT 2018.
“This year’s exhibition was attended by more than 160 participants consisting of 1 Ministry of Youth and Sports which featured 5 SME Patronage Partners, 5 State-Owned Enterprises which featured 18 SME Development Partners, 4 Regional Governments which featured 9 SME Assisted, and 128 Private SMEs Mandiri, “explained Rizal Adiputra, Chairperson of the Indocraft 2018 Exhibition, during the opening ceremony of the Indocraft 2018.
Furthermore, some brands like Pesona Batik Madura, Batik Tatik Srihata, Batik Harni, and Handy Hartono have caught our attentions not only with the designs and colors, but also the quality of its materials that worth the price, especially for those people who fancy collecting batik in its different form. Aside, from Batik clothing and fashion, there are other unique crafted souvenirs such as colorful stone rings that suprisingly only cost around IDR 200k – IDR 500k, at one booth called Nuansa Souvenir, you can find other unique craft accessories at the back area of the exhibition, near the lucky dip area.
During the exhibition, the organizers held Lucky Dip activities for visitors who transacted at least IDR 500.000, Visitors will get attractive prizes such as Samsung J8 phones, Extreme 1 phones, United bike bikes, Rice Cookers, Stoves, Iron, Batik, blenders, Goodie Bags, memos and keychain.
