Maybe his name is not as famous as batik or other distinctive fabrics, colors and patterns of fabric also has a particularly special meaning, just like the fabric. However, this fabric has other peculiarities, namely the color. Craft of weaving from Buton in Southeast Sulawesi is named the same as the regions, namely weaving Buton. Characteristic of this lies in the color weaving, in contrast with fabrics such as batik softer more colorful, woven Buton has a bolder color.

 

Regarding style, similar to batik fabric that has meaning, the style of weaving also has its own meaning, but usually depicting natural objects they found in the vicinity. Examples motifs inspired Betano walona koncuapa of fine ash hovering result when open field burning bush, colo makbahu motive or wet matches, motive bongko pomegranate (pomegranate rotten), Papua pomegranate motifs, and so forth.

 

Julfan Sifadi, a native of Buton who wish to continue to preserve the tradition of weaving in his hometown. According to him, the average weavers in old age, it also makes it more and want to maintain Buton weaving. According to him, when people struggle to know how the weavers are to be able to sell their products, the price offered will be worth it. "To sell the fabric, they take approximately 7 hours using a landline to Baubau, after the six hours back by ship, after it was new to Jakarta to Kendari, the track," he explained.

 

Julfan storytelling, weaving originated from the habit of using Buton in the neck, the way a lot of people are asking if it is, and where it came from the woven fabric. From there eventually Julfan with a capital of Rp 1 million intend to continue to preserve the culture of Buton. However, the man born Buton was not satisfied with the way this time, until finally he intends to add value to the Buton woven fabric by making it into a product that is known throughout Indonesia and even to the whole world.

 

Thanks to his hard work, his work can now be marketed to overseas. Countries Germany, France, Brunei is a country that most requests. "We also worked with the Embassy in Venezuela. Abroad once they really like this fabric, to the bigger market there than in their own country," he said.

 

"Turnover month can Rp30 million to Rp40 million for the fabric alone, but sandals and shoes, and others could reach Rp70 million. Sake of introducing the products I still follow the exhibitions, to the mall, and cooperate with boutiques," he explained .Demi follow current developments, since three years ago he was doing marketing through online media. Facebook chooses to be a means of introduction to the Buton tanun abroad.

 

 

Ini Kain Tenun Indonesia yang Tembus Pasar International

 

Mungkin namanya tak setenar batik atau kain khas lainnya, warna dan corak kain juga memiliki artian khusus terutama, sama seperti kainnya. Namun kain ini memiliki kekhasan lainnya, yaitu pada warna. Kerajinan tenun asal Kabupaten Buton Sulawesi Tenggara ini dinamakan sama dengan daerahnya, yaitu tenun Buton. Ciri khas tenun ini terletak di warna, berbeda dengan kain seperti batik yang lebih berwarna lebih lembut, tenun Buton ini memiliki warna yang lebih berani.

 

Mengenai corak, sama dengan kain batik yang memiliki makna, corak dari tenun ini juga memiliki arti tersendiri, namun biasanya menggambarkan obyek alam yang mereka temukan di sekitarnya. Contohnya motif betano walona koncuapa yang terinspirasi dari abu halus yang melayang-layang hasil pembakaran semak saat membuka ladang, motif colo makbahu atau korek basah, motif delima bongko (delima busuk), motif delima Papua, dan lain sebagainya.

 

Julfan Sifadi, warga asli Buton yang berkeinginan terus melestarikan tradisi tenun di kampung halamannya. Menurutnya, para penenun rata-rata telah berusia lanjut, hal itu juga membuatnya semakin ingin mempertahankan tenun Buton.

 

Menurutnya, bila masyarakat mengetahui bagaimana perjuangan para penenun tersebut untuk dapat menjual produknya, maka harga yang ditawarkan akan setimpal. "Untuk menjual kain, mereka membutuhkan waktu sekira 7 jam dengan menggunakan jalur darat ke Baubau, setelah itu enam jam kembali menggunakan kapal laut, setelah itu ke Kendari baru ke Jakarta, itu jalurnya," jelasnya.

 

Julfan bercerita, berawal dari kebiasaannya menggunakan tenun Buton di leher, dalam perjalanan banyak orang-orang yang bertanya apakah itu, dan dari mana asal kain tenun tersebut. Dari situ akhirnya Julfan dengan modal Rp1 juta berniat untuk terus melestarikan kebudayaan daerah Buton.

 

Namun, pria kelahiran Buton tersebut merasa belum puas dengan caranya selama ini, hingga akhirnya dirinya berniat untuk menambah nilai jual kain tenun Buton tersebut dengan membuatnya menjadi produk yang dikenal di seluruh Indonesia bahkan hingga seluruh dunia.

 

Berkat kerja kerasnya, kini karyanya bisa dipasarkan hingga luar negeri. Negara Jerman, Prancis, Brunei adalah negara yang paling banyak permintaan. "Kita juga pernah bekerja sama dengan KBRI di Venezuela. Di luar negeri mereka sangat menyukai sekali kain ini, untuk itu lebih besar pasar di sana dibandingkan dengan dalam negeri sendiri," ungkap dia.

 

"Omzetnya sebulan bisa Rp30 Juta hingga Rp40 juta untuk kainnya saja, tetapi sandal dan sepatu, dan lain-lain bisa mencapai Rp70 jutaan. Demi memperkenalkan produknya saya masih mengikuti pameran-pameran, ke mall, dan bekerja sama dengan butik-butik," jelasnya.Demi mengikuti perkembangan saat ini, maka sejak tiga tahun lalu dirinya melakukan pemasaran melalui media online. Facebook dipilihnya menjadi sarana perkenalan tanun Buton hingga ke luar negeri.
