The scenario in the batik industry and detail about the characteristic that fooled consumers was stated in this study. The imitation batik is not a traditional batik sarong, because they are not aesthetically sustained the traditional technique and characteristic is also different. In a future study, this research should define how the role of innovation can continue, and the traditional batik flourishes without shading off the batik tradition.
