Kebaya until now holds an important title in his fist as Indonesia’s national dress. However, to arrive at this point, the kebaya has come a very long way—if not to be called challenging. Regarding the origin of the kebaya, some say that the kebaya came from China and entered Indonesia because of trade. There is also a claim that kebaya was brought to Indonesia by carriers of Islamic symbols who were also merchants from the Middle East in the 12th century. There are also those who argue that kebaya is a mixture of Arabs, Chinese, and Indians in the past. Another source says that the kebaya actually comes from the Portuguese who came to Indonesia in the 14th century. Some say the word kebaya comes from habaya which comes from Arabic. There are also those who say that actually kebaya comes from the Portuguese language, kobaya.
Kebaya itself is a blouse-shaped dress with a collared front opening. The length of the sleeves and the length of the clothes then varies according to the local culture. When imagining “kebaya” we can bring up many images in our minds. Our minds automatically display the kebaya and its many forms. The 1950s was what Peter Lee said was the last fashion evolution of the 20th century. Women born in the late 19th and first decades of the 20th century were the last generation to wear the kebaya as their daily outfit. In the New Order era (1966-1998), during the reign of President Soeharto, the second president of Indonesia, the kebaya was no longer used in everyday life because of the modern era and the kebaya was considered to represent ancient times.
Kebaya is then only worn on certain events, such as weddings or other formal forms, such as uniforms. One of the organizations that chose the kebaya as the uniform was Dharma Wanita, an organization for the wives of civil servants in all fields, from BUMN to the National Police. Until now kebaya is often used by Javanese people when participating in celebrating national holidays, such as Indonesian Independence Day, Kartini Day, and so on. The production of traditional clothing such as the kebaya is still ongoing because of the large number of enthusiasts for traditional clothes to be used in various events, both adult and children’s sizes. The use of children’s traditional clothes has also begun to be loved, usually worn for sarimbitan or uniforms with fathers and other adults.
So for the trend of children’s clothing models also follow the trend of adult clothing models. Not only traditional clothes that are loved by many children, but daily children’s clothes, such as robes, dresses, negligee, and others are also getting a lot of interest. Seeing the opportunities above where traditional clothing is still needed on various occasions such as the celebration of Indonesian Independence Day, clothing manufacturers are competing to meet market demand. We as a manufacturer of children’s clothes have produced various kinds of children’s clothes, from kebaya, party dresses, beskap, robes, and so on. In this article, we will explain a little about our best seller series, namely the kebaya, which is never empty of fans. The series of children’s brocade kebaya clothes that we produce have 5 models, namely the Kutubaru Brocade Kebaya, Prilly’s Kebaya, Aira’s Kebaya, Maheswari’s Kebaya, and Sheila’s Kebaya. Here we explain the characteristics of one of our kebaya series
Kebaya Maheswari is a development design that takes the basis of Prilly’s Kebaya design. The difference is in the shape of the sleeves and the addition of dotty tiles at the bottom of the ruffle and the collar is thinner than Prilly’s Kebaya because there is no bending. The same part is only on the SPTI fabric puring and the outer layer of corneli brocade at the waist up, the waist down the outer layer using a dotty tile. The basic design is still the same, which combines the design of the Kukubaru kebaya and the rempel at the waist. The design of the Kutabaru kebaya is a kebaya with a collar that is bridged by a rectangular panel from the chest to the upper waist. The panels and collar are then secured with small buttons hidden under the collar. Especially for the kebaya maheswari, we made it sharp at the bottom and then connected it with a ruffle and a small ribbon in the middle.
The type of collar model that we use is a square neck with the aim of balancing the upper and lower parts of the body so that it is more proportional. The sleeves are puff-shaped which means the short sleeves are wrinkled at the shoulders and forearms to give volume to the arms and get a vintage and classic feel. For the bottom of the skirt, we use a span skirt design, for the basic material we use 3 kinds of fabric, namely Jagat batik cloth, machete batik cloth, and Prada batik cloth. We do not only produce brocade kebaya, but there are many other children’s clothing products including dresses, beskap, children’s daily clothes such as shirts, negligee, one set and so on.
