    Putting-out system (POS) production method became the main choice for industry due to its flexibility, informal, efficient, and more importantly, this method supported the competition in global market. POS occurred within the production house through house manipulation process, also women’s role in domestic as well as production sphere. In POS-based industry, women and family became the center of production, but they remained marginalized. Batik is one of the commodities which use POS-based industry and is produced mostly by women. Batik is easily closely-related to women and become the symbol of Indonesian culture. However, the original batik has been pushed away by full-printed batik and chemical-induced colored batik. If seen through the lens of ecofeminism, batik are forms of women and environment oppression. This study was a case study based on ecofeminism perspective. This paper would describe eco-friendly batik as women’s strategy to protect their domestic and environmental sphere. By decentralizing batik production to domestic area, it would influence on the cost transfer such as economy, social, ideology, and environment. Producing batik in domestic area created waste from chemical-induced color, kerosene and wax burning which could be dangerous to women, children, family members, society, and its environment. Ideology cost took form of women and children marginalization, also the disappearance of family arena which was later replaced by factory production. Eco-friendly batik is women’s response to the manipulation of their domestic and environment sphere. This batik could promote the protection of women, children, and other family members, as well as the environment.
