However, not all regions in Indonesia can preserve the Batik industry. This study aimed to assess the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the Indonesian Jambinese Batik products. In order to keep developing in both the local and international markets, four Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) were examined as the samples of this research, which was conducted by using purposive sampling technique. Data collection was conducted by observations, interviews and group discussions. The research analysis was carried out qualitatively by using SWOT analysis. The qualitative method is a research procedure that produces descriptive data in the form of written or oral words from people or observable behavior.
