Batik is an Indonesian cultural heritage that has been passed down from generation to generation. Currently batik artisans based on the putting-out system are faced with various threats and pressures at work, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic. Under stressful conditions, batik artisans adapt and implement strategies to survive. The individual's ability to survive under pressure is resilience. A person can be resilient with supporting factors, one of which is local wisdom. For this reason, the purpose of this paper is to build a conceptual framework to explain the resilience of local wisdom-based putting-out system batik artisans using the perspective of resilience theory by Reivich and Shatte. The method of writing uses a literature review. In conclusion, local wisdom which originates from community habits and culture is one of the factors in forming resilience. Individuals who have high resilience understand how to deal with threats and problems and find ways to solve them.
