- The emergence of conservative trends in the environmental field has encouraged batik artisans and entrepreneurs to play an active role in increasing the level of conservation in their environment. Through ecobatics which has become a trend in developed countries, encouraging the use of ecobatic methods in the production and selection of dyes. The purpose of this study is to describe the insight of batik craftsman knowledge about the importance of nature / environment conservation, what materials can be used as natural dyes in batik, the stages of the "ecobatic" production process in the village of Gemawang, Semarang district; and 4) the benefits of producing "ecobatics". This research approach uses qualitative descriptive methods with data collection techniques through interviews, observation and documentation. Data validity is tested through source triangulation techniques and methods. The data analysis technique uses an interactive model through the stages of reduction, display and conclusion drawing. This research reveals that the insights of batik craftsman knowledge about the sustainability / nature conservation is relatively low. Natural dyes used to produce ecobatics are all types of plants ranging from leaves, roots, stems and fruit. The ecobatic production process is the same as the batik production process in general, it's just that the dyeing process is mostly done to get optimal coloring results. Profits from ecobatic production consist of financial benefits and environmental conservation benefits. This research can be used as a preliminary study in developing an ecobatic-based environment and conservative patterns in utilizing the potential of the region as a source of income for the community.
