Dec '11
The Banyumas batik art belonging to the southwestern part of Central Java province in Indonesia will be promoted by the Government and for the purpose a gallery would be built using state funds.

The Government has allocated a sum of IDR 1.78 billion to construct the gallery on an area of 3,000 square metres, which is likely to conclude in four months time.

All kinds of traditional Banyumas batik would be put up for display and sale at the gallery. Moreover, the gallery would also impart training to enthusiasts in batik art and would also provide space for production of Biron, a kind of batik.

While majority of the residents in Sokaraja district of Banyumas regency were engaged in batik art as a profession during 1980s, now there are just 95 people in the area who engage in the art.

Banyumas batik has different patterns compared to batiks produced in other regions of the country. It comes in six unique patterns – Lumbon, Babon Angrem, Wahyu Temurun, Jahe Srimpang, Pring Sedapur and Pager Galar.
