Affordable leavers lace kebaya manufacturers in Gorontalo. If Aceh is known as the “Veranda of Mecca”, then Gorontalo is known as the “Veranda of Medina”. The origin of this nickname has many versions, including the Buya Hamka version, namely: a. Gorontalo is like the “Veranda of Medina” where the bustle of the people are busy worshiping, filling mosques, and also chanting holy verses can be heard echoing in every corner of the mosque. b. The Gorontalo people are like the Ansar (original residents of Medina) who are very open to accepting Islam as the religion of the kingdoms in Gorontalo, and are very friendly to welcome immigrants who migrate or migrate to Gorontalo. These immigrants came from Arab lands (Hadramaut), Malay (Sumatra), China (China), Minahasa (North Sulawesi), and Bugis (South Sulawesi).
Each region in Indonesia has its own uniqueness, ranging from nicknames, the diversity of ethnic groups who live, the diversity of religions adopted, regional languages, and traditional clothing. Traditional clothing is also an identity of national pride or the identity of a region. So do not be surprised, if traditional clothing is often used in important events with the aim of representing the culture or identity of a particular ethnic group. Kebaya was chosen as the national dress representing the many traditional clothes that exist in Indonesia because the kebaya is considered to be able to describe the identity of Indonesian women. The inauguration of the Indonesian national dress was carried out during the reign of President Soekarno around the 1950s. This was done after seeing women wearing kebaya taking to the streets choosing to fight and making the kebaya a symbol of Indonesian nationalism.
Kebaya has gone through tens to hundreds of years of changing times and still survives until now. Although not much changed in form, the kebaya style is an important element to show differences in social status, economic level, type of work, to one’s origins. Based on the collar model, the kebaya is divided into two types, namely the Kartini kebaya and the Kutubaru kebaya. Indeed, all kebayas have a collar that at first glance is the same that extends from the neck to the bottom of the kebaya, but there are still differences. The Kartini kebaya, named after a woman from Jepara named Raden Ajeng Kartini, is a kebaya where the two sides of the collar meet from the chest to the hips and then the collars are closed with brooches, pins, or hidden safety pins. This kebaya pays homage to celebrate women’s emancipation and it is hoped that women who wear this style of kebaya will carry the intellectual spirit and elegance of RA Kartini.
Meanwhile, the Kutubaru kebaya is a kebaya style 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. Making a kebaya is not an easy way to master the art but it is not impossible either. It took a long study and practice to finally arrive at the maestro level. However, before starting, the designer should have known the style to be created. It is important to determine the kebaya style before measuring, to determine whether the recorded size will fit the body, such as for the Kukubaru kebaya or loose, such as the loose-fitting Kartini kebaya. The following are the steps for creating a simple kebaya: after making a sketch, the next step is the measurement, which is recording the body size of the prospective kebaya user.
There are 12 measurements that must be taken if you want to make a kebaya with a Kartini style. a. The length of the kebaya from the top of the shoulder to the end of the cloth; b. Size of chest and back; c. Back length from neck to waist; d. Length from the top of the shoulder to the chest e. Wide across the curved shoulder span; f. Back width at the chest; g. Sleeve length from shoulder to wrist; h. The size of the arm taken just above the elbow; i. body circumference; j. Hip circumference; k. Waist size; l. Arm circumference under shoulder. After taking measurements, all recorded measurements are transferred to an umbrella paper (brown paper) to then be drawn into a pattern with the body size of the prospective user. In the past, the kebaya was used as daily clothing, in modern times it is widely used in various occasions and events, ranging from traditional ceremonies, events to celebrate independence, Kartini, to weddings and graduation ceremonies.
