Celebrating Local Empowerment: Batik Mangrove Dompak Laut Pattern Copyright is Officially Secured

In the heart of Dompak, a local community's dedication to preserving its cultural heritage and natural resources has culminated in a significant achievement. The Batik Mangrove Dompak Laut pattern, a symbol of the community's resilience and connection to nature, has officially been granted copyright protection by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of The Republic of Indonesia.

Sustainable Craftsmanship

The Batik Mangrove Dompak Laut is not just a piece of fabric; it's a testament to sustainable practices. Crafted with care, the batik dye is sourced from the bark of deceased mangroves, specifically the Rhizophora mucronata species. This eco-friendly approach honours the environment and ensures that the production process remains in harmony with nature.

A Tapestry of Stories

Each pattern woven into the Batik Mangrove tells a unique story:

  1. Tudung Saji represents the community's commitment to safeguarding their diverse cultures, tribes, and traditions.

  2. Buah Berembang is a narrative of the community's unwavering resilience and determination to thrive against all odds.

  3. Kapal Jong is an emblem of the human spirit's voyage towards achieving aspirations and dreams.

These designs are inspired by the legendary mangroves that once protected Dompak's people and ecosystem from pirate invasions.

Empowering the Community

The production of Batik Mangrove Dompak Laut has been a boon for the local economy, creating jobs and enhancing the educational opportunities for the community. Notably, it has become a driving force for women's empowerment, with female participation in the production process reaching an impressive 67%.

A Mission for the Future

With the legal recognition of the Batik Mangrove Dompak Laut pattern, the mission to uplift the Dompak communities gains new momentum. This milestone is not just about protecting a pattern; it's about nurturing the growth and prosperity of coastal communities.
