Indonesia rich in CULTURE, mostly people only knew about WAYANG, KERIS, and BATIK; yet, Indonesia also have another traditional woven fabric that has been used since many-many hundreds years ago, maybe since Indonesia known by other people, it’s called LURIK
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.
