A bark-coloured pillow with an all-over pattern inspired by the kedawung seeds. The base fabric is handwoven using the floating-weft technique on a traditional loom in Pekalongan.

Kedawung Fabric

Made by pedal loom weavers in Pekalongan, Central Java
Product Story

The motif in Kedawung textile takes inspiration from the flat and oval shapes of kedawung seeds, a type of legume tree widely grown in Indonesian forests. The floating weft technique is used to create a small pattern where some of the warp is left unwoven.

Darker bark-coloured threads are woven as the warp that sets behind a contrasting small white pattern similar to cecekan. A flowing rhythm of cecekan embodies the falling of kedawung seeds from its trees, waiting to be gathered in time by farmers in the villages. The base fabric is handwoven by pedal loom weavers in Pak Kadir’s house, Pekalongan.
