- Each Indonesia region has special characteristics of Batik motifs made by the local craftsmen and designers. However, the technical manufacturing is still conventional and less effective, especially the natural coloring process using soil. This study aims to develop a formulation of soil batik design based on consumer needs. This research and development study used interviews and observation as the data collection technique, of which the interviews were carried out for both consumers and batik experts. Results show that soil batik design was developed based on consumer needs including (1) the varieties of motifs covering culinary, prominent local culture, regional characteristic, and local philosophy, (2) different size of main, secondary, and additional motifs, (3) interesting layout, (4) combinative colors usage, and (5) the basic fabric color that should darker color than the motifs’ colors. This study suggested that the soil batik developed in this study could be used by Batik craftsmen to vary their products and to enhance their sales.
