Twin sisters Aulia Ristya Purnama and Aulia Ristya Purnami, both 30, have turned a "grudge" into a promise of nationwide sharing. The sisters taught themselves how to make batik in 2011, and then developed the Adelia Batik handmade batik workshop and production house in Bekasi, West Java. They are empowering the local community by sharing their knowledge in batik making.
The women are known as pioneers of introducing batik making to Bekasi. “Adelia Batik” is derived from the nicknames of the identical twins: the elder twin is called Lia, while the younger is called Ade.
