Especially when the discovery of a fact that through human technology, it is able to uncover a variety of potential that has not been revealed, hidden, and suppressed in premodern society. But along with that achievement, technology has had a very significant negative impact on humans themselves, more specifically on human-made creative products such as those in batik. The purpose of this study is to describe the forms of technological imperialization of the archipelago batik, and to find out the impact resulting from the imperialization of the technology. This research uses descriptive qualitative research methods.
