The Village of Rope Makers

>> Nov 14, 2011

Weeks ago, I can capture a little bit of their activities. During our journey back home from my husband's home town, I passed by Kubangwungu village (Brebes, Central Java, Indonesia). Most people there make ropes that commonly used on ships, besides as farmers.

They do the making rope job on the sidewalk. If you pass through an alternative way Pejagan (Brebes) - Prupuk (Tegal, Central Java, Indonesia), you would be able to see it. It's so interesting. Rope with a length of ten meters put exactly on the side of the road, while other workers are rotating wheels for rolling the rope.

In this village there are dozens of craftsmen who have been in the making rope business for generations. Based on various sources, it said that before they made hemp rope from banana bark material. Along with the time progress, now they develop ropes using plant waste materials, such as children's food packaging waste from waste plastics and textile mills. Wastes that can be utilized are the long ones, which are possible to be used as ropes.

It’s a pity that they are now facing the difficulty of raw materials. There are lots of orders came from out of towns, but the barriers are hard to find raw materials.The material is recycled into a rope with a variety of sizes, such as the ship rope length between 30 and 40 yards.

Creative craftsmen, I hope they can find ways to replenish the raw materials they need to make a roof.
