During the dry season, sunlight is abundant. Contrastly, during rainy season the scorching sun is very limited.The traditional batik artisans during the rainy season of 3-4 months, the production process of Batik with indigosol dye has decreased to half of the total production capacity in a year.In order to overcome this problem, it is necessary to do innovations in creating a tool that could increase the production capacity of Batik which could have an impact on the improvement of the craftsmen Batik income in general.

Keywords:Batik, Photonic, Indigosol Dyes, UV-LED and Innovation.
