"Panji Lori" in Batik Tenun Gedog Tuban

Did you know that the motif "Panji Lori" in Tuban gedog batik weaving symbolizes rice (food)?

This motif has a noble philosophy as a powerful reminder that we nurture the nature and the soil in which we grow food that serves as the main pillar of human life. The motives of "Panji-Panji" in antiquity were only owned by nobles, but now can be owned by various social circles.

Tuban is located on the north coast of East Java, Indonesia. The culture of batik making in Tuban is very unique, called gedog batik or gedog woven. They planted their own cotton trees, spun them into yarn, weave them into woven fabrics, and then write them in beautiful motifs. Historically, batik Tuban gedog is influenced by 3 main cultures: Javanese, Islam and Chinese.
