The Javanese lurik is built upon a plethora of variations, each one embodying its own stripe pattern. Sleret Blungko is an adaptation of the traditional loropat lurik wherein loropat literally means two-four in Javanese and the stripes of the fabric are woven accordingly. The pattern playfully takes its name from a cucumber fruit widely grown in the region of East Java.
The production of Sleret Blungko textile is proudly brought within a circular design ecosystem, beginning with the harvesting of native cotton from Tuban farmland all the way to the hands of local spinsters. The cotton yarn is hand-dyed, resulting in a rich, saturated blue colour.
A pair of these fabrics are sewn together and lined with fringes to disguise stitches while creating a playful texture to the whole look. Sleret Blungko pillow carries a refreshing coastal vibe with timeless origins that will brighten up your home with renewed allure. The base fabric is handwoven by backstrap loom weavers in Pak Fajar's house, Tuban.
