Solo is the birthplace of Go Tik Swan, the Chinese batik maestro who was bestowed the royal title of Panembahan Hardjonagoro from the Kasunanan Palace of Surakarta. Go was President Sukarno’s favourite batik master. Indonesia’s first president asked him to create batik Indonesia, with some designs still in existence now.
Batik was popular in the Netherlands in the mid 19th century. It gave birth to the classical Haarlem and Vlisco batik.
