POTENSI PERTUMBUHAN INDUSTRI BATIK DI KAMPUNG BATIK LAWEYAN
All along, batik industry seems to be ignored in the world of university education because until now the study that offers outcome correlating with batik industry has been very limited. Not only in Surakarta, but also in other part of Indonesia. Even the four studies that UNIBA (Islamic Batik University) of Surakarta offers, are not related directly with batik industry.
This situation has also faced by other universities. Sensing this opportunity, UNIBA has an intention to improve itself so that it is able to develop a study that has direct relation with batik industry by doing research, collecting statistics about batik industry in Surakarta and Sragen.
