SEKAR KAWUNG FOUNDATION

MUDO TRESNO WASTRO COLLECTION

Designed by Abraham Wahyo.

We chose to feature “Tenun Gedog Tuban” because of its long history of a vibrant and living textile culture:

“During the height of the Silk Road days, Kambang Putih, now known as Tuban, was an important international sea port. Written records as far back as the 10th century, tell that cotton and woven cloth were important exports from Java to many other Southeast Asian countries at the time. The ancient textile tradition in this area continues to live on today. Here weavers still plant their own cotton, thus their textiles are fully sustainable. They also have a timeless beauty.

The motifs used in this collection are decorated using Songket techniques. The patterns are simple yet full of character. In this collection we are using the following motifs:
– kembang Jati (Teak Flower)
– Kembang Polo (Nutmeg flower)
– laler menclok (Fly on a perch)
– Batu rante (chain of stones)
– Batik krompol (meaning a collection of dots) 9 (Batik with 9 dots)
– Batik krompol 16 (Batik with 16 dots).

Before the era of batik, which some experts estimate to have been introduced after the 12th century, all cloth in Tuban was decorated using weaving techniques such as ikat and Songket. The older batik’s seem to be created to emulate the ancient woven cloth of geometric designs. These dot dominated batik’s still exist today in Tuban, alongside the more popular pictorial batik’s that are decorated with pictures of mythical flora and fauna.

In our collection we offer the ancient handwoven geometrically decorated textiles using Songket techniques using backstrap looms, and hand-painted dot based batik of Tuban, in contemporary clothing designs for youth in the 21st century. Timeless sophistication, timeless sustainability, timelessly zen designs.
