Malaysia: The Next Chapter - Keeping Batik Relevant

As part of our 64th Merdeka Day celebrations, we’re taking a look this week at Malaysia: The Next Chapter - companies and people who exemplify the potential in Malaysia’s future. Jadi Batek is one of the biggest batik and souvenir shops in Kuala Lumpur. Established in 1976, it was the only batik shop in Bukit Bintang during the 70s and 80s. Colin Yong talks to us about the evolution of the business, his efforts in reviving batik and the story behind taking the helm of the family business.
