Batik Sidomukti dan Truntum December 8, 2005

In a wedding ceremony the bride and the bridegroom wear the same motif of batik Sidomukti, symbolizing a happiness and prosperous life. Using the same motif symbolizing the togetherness. The parents of the bride and the bridegroom wear batik with motif of Truntum, symbolizing the advice of the parents to the newly weds to enter the new life with full of love and confidence.

Saya mencari pengrajin batik untuk membuat pola2 diatas. Kebetulan saya bertemu Ibu Suprinah di sebuah toko batik di Yogyakarta. Motif yang kami cari ternyata sudah jarang. Sidomukti yang ditawarkan tidak seperti yang saya inginkan yakni Selo Kromo. Pembuatannya makan waktu 1 bulan per kain batik. Harganya di toko mungkin hampir 1 juta, tapi di tangan pengrajin langsung menjadi Rp400ribu.
