LURIK is a fabric with a pattern of tiny stripes that have traditionally been men’s clothing typical of rural residents among Java tribes. LURIK  made ​​from coarse cotton fabric clothing material to be relatively inexpensive and affordable for the poor.

LURIK sometimes synonymous with the sling that  used by ‘ mbok jamu’ or a vendor lady that selling herbal drink.
