    Story Behind the Art:
    Lawe Lurik Community was formed by five women, Adinindyah, Westiani Agustin, Rina Anita, Ita Natalia and Paramita Iswari group of people concerned with our cultural heritage, especially our hand-weaving traditions. They want to transform traditional fabrics into something useful in daily life, so that people will recognize and appreciate our traditional fabrics better than before.

    In Javanese, lawe means 'thread' while Lurik means 'stripe.' The Lawe Luric Community seeks to preserve the hand-weaving traditions of Indonesia and simultaneously empower women, encouraging them to contribute improving their livelihood, and be a part of our country's prosperity.

    At first we used traditional fabrics from Jogjakarta called Lurik,which are mostly dark colored but customers didn't really like it because they felt it was not attractive and felt gloomy. We informed the weavers and suggested they try weaving brighter Lurik fabrics, but they weren't sure about customers liking it and they were afraid to lose. Then at Lawe Lurik Community we received an order of approximately 30 meters of Lurik fabric in bright shades of yellow, blue, white, green and orange, and that convinced them.

    We have some competitors that try to imitate our products at lower prices, but their quality is below our standard. Our commitment is to make good quality products with reasonable prices. It takes time to ensure our customers that our products are unique and different. Some think hand-woven fabrics are just the same as mass produced fabrics from factories so we need to explain to them that we continue to use traditional methods, there is no machine work, and this can be reflected in our prices.

    We offer women new opportunities to increase their income and thus their bargaining power in their families. We also give opportunities to people with disabilities to intern at Lawe Lurik Community.
