Each visual sign has an individual meaning and will form a text (series of meanings) when the signs are combined. Purposive samples based on typology of batik motifs style, that is Chinese, Javanese, and combination of the two styles. The purpose of the study is to reveal the life values of Lasem society life values, which need to be understood in making batik design innovation.
