The stamped batik business in Jambewangi Village, Sempu District is experiencing a decline. This is all due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The decline was due to the drop in foreign tourist arrivals.

This statement was conveyed by one of the owners of the stamped batik business, Hartono, 42, from Jambewangi Village, Sempu District. The man, who previously worked at a convection factory on the Island of the Gods, said that his batik products are usually sent to Bali. "In addition to clothes, foreign tourists usually buy in Bali," said Hartono.

After the number of foreign tourists declined due to restrictions on the impact of the corona virus, he explained, his sales of stamped batik cloths continued to decline. "Currently, one month can only send four to five dozen batik cloths," he said.

In Surabaya, the conditions for the spread of the Covid-19 virus were used by business, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to get back up. MSME actors fostered by the Customs District of Cantian Pristiwi Marhaenika, are now actively promoting their dyed batik. He cooperates with various parties to market the product.

“The effect of PSBB or PPKM is very much felt. In a month, only 2-3 batiks are sold,'' he said.

Cantian Customs District helps in the field of promotion. Heni, as Pristiwi Marhaenika is called, has started to develop her business. From offline sales, Heni has now switched to online sales. He also works with a number of hotels. Now his peacock batik has been marketed to one of the hotels around his residence.

"Alhamdulillah, production has resumed, although conditions have not returned to normal. But, what's important is that income starts to increase,'' said Heni.
