Restore Popularity of Belayu Weaving Cloth

Restore Popularity of Belayu Weaving ClothWhen talking about the matter of weaving production, people’s mind will refer to Peken village within the area of Belayu customary village. The beautiful village located in Marga subdistrict is known as the center of traditional textile crafts. Most people here can weave. Moreover, the royal family and community living adjacent to the Belayu Palace will certainly be capable of using the traditional looms.

Unfortunately, such traditional activities seem no longer audible lately. Even, the production of typical woven fabric of Belayu is apparently marginalized by modern products. Well, to restore the popularity of the weaving production of the local village, Tabanan government then provides basic training of weaving for the younger generation.

The activity was opened by the Chairperson of the Tabanan Regional Handicraft Council (Dekranasda), Mrs. Rai Wahyuni Sanjaya, Monday (Aug 19) attended by 20 participants. They were the representatives of weaving businesses from Batanyuh and Peken village because both villages retained the weaving potential since ancient times.

She said the success of a product to enter into the market both within and outside the country was determined by the fulfillment of specified standards of local government. “The current market behavior of the world shows that compliance is not just an added-value, but also a prerequisite for all products,” she said.

Weaving handicraft industry was one of the leading commodities having superiority such the design rooted in the values of Balinese culture. “Bali as a world’s tourist destination is a considerable market potential for the weaving handicraft products, primarily the typical Balinese weaving,” he said.
Chairman of the Committee, IGW Sukaja, said the basic training was to motivate young people in order to preserve the weaving tradition inherited from generation to generation. “This activity is to explore and develop the weaving activities having experienced the golden age in the past,” he said.

Meanwhile, one of the weavers, Suartini, claimed that marketing potential for woven handicrafts was very widely open. Sometimes, the weavers were unable to meet the demand of the Badung and Tabanan market. “The regeneration is required to preserve the weaving craft business,” she said. (BTN/015)
