Batik prints are traditionally seen on cheongsams, sarongs and kebayas. But batik stores these days have taken to combining those prints with modern styles of clothing. At these ones in Singapore, you’ll find both traditional Peranakan outfits to modern day crop tops and rompers - all with those beautiful floral and geometric designs.

Some of these stores even have batik home accessories so you can take your love for batik beyond your wardrobe.

Heartakarun plays on the words “harta karun”, which translates to treasure trove and based on how some their batiks are brought in from places like Cambodia, Japan and Indonesia, it’s clear how the store remains true to its name.
