Indonesian traditional textiles, such as batik fabrics, have proven to be an effective cultural diplomacy medium in enhancing the image of the country internationally, said director general of the National Export Development of Indonesia Nus Nuzulia Ishak at the 7th edition of the exhibition of Indonesian traditional fabrics ‘Adiwastra Nusantra 2014’ held recently in Jakarta.
 
According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Trade of Indonesia, Mr. Ishak said exhibitions like these are a continuous process to preserve and develop local excellence and wisdom of the traditional fabrics manufactured in the country.
 
The Adiwastra Nusantara exhibition is an initiative taken to develop the potential of Indonesian traditional textiles so that it plays a bigger role in the national economy, he added.
 
The exhibition, held under the theme “Silk Inspires Our Lives, Silk Is The Main Thread Of Inspiration For Our Lives”, featured a variety of excellent products of Indonesian handicrafts such as classic and contemporary batik, printed batik, batik fabrics, ikat-batik, songket fabrics, jumputan fabrics and sasirangan fabrics from all over the country.
 
Organized by the Ministry of Trade, the National Export Development of Indonesia and the Traditional Silk Association of Indonesia (ASSIA), the five-day event saw participation from 450 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) showcasing various traditional textiles.
 
Parallel to the exhibition, a workshop on sericulture was also held with the aim of helping Indonesian farmers rearing silkworms, as well as silk spinning and weaving industries, textile craft entrepreneurs, and researchers to nurture and further develop the natural silk sector of the country.
 
Indonesian batik cloth is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique.
