The delicate allure of Ikat products make them perfect décor and couture accessories. Their elaborate designs can be played up or down to best fit one’s personal tastes. “Ikat” Weaving on display at the PRCF Indonesia Gallery
The PRCF Indonesia Ikat Gallery provides a point of sales in Pontianak for the products of the Jasa Menenun Mandiri (JMM) Cooperative of Sintang and for independent weavers throughout the province. Their efforts in promoting these beautiful, traditional handicrafts support sustainable livelihoods and empowers the Dayak women weavers of the region. These products are available in their pure form, or are incorporated into modern fashion and décor centerpieces. They also offer beautiful, traditional handicrafts made of rattan and bamboo, from other regions of West Kalimantan.
PRCF promotes the sustainable use of Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFP), fostering natural dye gardens and offering training on harvesting these resources responsibly. The use of natural dyes in the woven products available at their gallery provides a safe and traditional method for finishing the cloth, while reducing the impact that this process has on the environment. Purchases made at the PRCF Indonesia Gallery contribute to conserving an interest in one of the cultural pillars of Dayak society.
