Batik tiga negeri or “ three-region batik” is a hand drawn batik that underwent dyeing processes in three different areas, namely in Solo, Pekalongan and Lasem. One batik workshop that has been producing a wide variety of “Three-region batiks” since the beginning of the twentieth century was the Tjoa’s family batik workshop, founded by Tjoa Giok Tjiam in Solo, Central Java.
Their workshop has growth rapidly and lasted for three generations. One of Tjoa Giok Tjiam’s son, Tjoa Tjoen Tiang, played an enormous role in improving the quality of batiks from Tjoa’s workshop. In comparison with other Tjoa’s batiks, Tjoa Tjoen Tiang’s batiks which bore T.T.T signature have relatively better quality because the batik making process were more carefully executed.
