Founded in 1890, Noor Arfa is well-known for producing nothing but the original handmade batik in Malaysia. Some might say they are paying through the nose just for a simple batik but what they do not know the work that gets put into making just our batik. The time put into it takes weeks to design one batik. Thus to say, our batik is only designed by only one designer, this is so our designs are more unique and do not clash with other designers.
Nowadays, people take advantage of batik. They would take any kind of material such as a printed fabric and call it batik. By doing this they put cheaper prices on it, making people question why our batik is more expensive. There many ways to know if the batik is original or not. For example, checking the material front and back, if original the colour would be as vibrant front and back. Other than that is to smell the fabric, if it smells like wax it is original batik but if it smells more like oil it is most likely a printed fabric. Furthermore, our batik is very high premium quality. Don’t believe us? Try it out yourself by visiting one of our outlets here in Malaysia. You’ll notice the soft, silky and cool feeling on your skin. With many designs to choose from, guaranteed you’ll find one that will suit you.
