The Ministry of Industry along with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Government of Timor Tengah Selatan Regency, East Nusa Tenggara have agreed to meet the needs of cotton raw materials for the development of small and medium industries (IKM) weaving.

 

The reason, during this weaving industry acts as one of the driving regional and national economies that contribute considerably to the state's foreign exchange and employment.

 

"This cooperation is expected to guarantee supply chain of raw materials of cotton for the needs of IKM weaving craftsmen in East Nusa Tenggata Province, especially South Timor Tengah Regency," Director General of IKM Kemenperin Gati Wibawaningsih said.

 

Gati explained that as a first step, cotton planting was done on 13 hectares of land by Directorate General of Plantation, Kementan in West Mollo Subdistrict and previously in May 2017 has been made a demonstration plot by Research and Development Center on 3 hectares of land in the same sub- .

 

Furthermore, the Directorate General of IKM Kemenperin will provide assistance in designing and ginning machine equipment and weaving machines to the weaving center in South Central Timor District which is a follow up of the mentoring program in 2016.

 

"Kementan is ready to prepare its raw materials and Kemenperin help some machines to produce cotton," said Gati. According to him, the granting of machines with a budget of around Rp 400 million is a project Pilot.

 

"If this is successful, we will supply throughout Indonesia, while the program is centered in South Central Timor District which focuses on two centers, namely Boti and Nasi Subdistrict," said Gati.

 

Kemenperin noted, currently there are 430 centers of weaving spread across the territory of Indonesia including in the province of East Nusa Tenggara. Almost all districts / cities in East Nusa Tenggara Province are weaving producers located at 115 Sentra IKM with 3,506 craftsmen who have characteristic of each region. Generally the raw materials used are cotton yarn dyed with textile dyes and natural dyes.

 

In strengthening the quality of weaving products, the Directorate General of IKM will also conduct a series of coaching for IKM through human resources strengthening facilities with technical guidance and mentoring activities.

 

In addition, it will provide machinery and equipment assistance, product quality improvement and market development, center strengthening, technical service unit strengthening and New Entrepreneurship growth.

 

"We hope, weaving products are not only used for custom but also for fashion, handicraft products and home decor," said Gati.

 

 

Penggerak Ekonomi, Industri Tenun Terus Dikembangkan

 

 

Kementerian Perindustrian bersama Kementerian Pertanian dan Pemerintah Kabupaten Timor Tengah Selatan, Nusa Tenggara Timur telah sepakat untuk memenuhi kebutuhan bahan baku kapas bagi pengembangan industri kecil dan menengah (IKM) tenun.

 

Pasalnya, selama ini industri tenun berperan sebagai salah satu penggerak perekonomian daerah dan nasional yang memberikan kontribusi cukup besar terhadap devisa negara dan penyerapan tenaga kerja.

 

"Kerja sama ini diharapkan dapat menjamin rantai pasok bahan baku kapas guna kebutuhan perajin IKM tenun di Provinsi Nusa Tenggata Timur, khususnya Kabupaten Timor Tengah Selatan," ujar Dirjen IKM Kemenperin Gati Wibawaningsih.

 

Gati menjelaskan, sebagai langkah awal, telah dilakukan penanaman kapas di atas lahan seluas 13 hektare oleh Ditjen Perkebunan, Kementan di Kecamatan Mollo Barat dan sebelumnya pada Mei 2017 telah dibuat demplot oleh Balai Penelitian dan Pengembangan Kementan di atas lahan seluas 3 hektare di kecamatan yang sama.

 

Selanjutnya, Ditjen IKM Kemenperin akan memberikan bantuan pendampingan desain dan peralatan mesin ginning dan mesin tenun kepada sentra tenun di Kabupaten Timor Tengah Selatan yang merupakan tindak lanjut dari program pendampingan pada tahun 2016.

 

"Kementan siap menyiapkan bahan bakunya dan Kemenperin membantu beberapa mesin untuk memproduksi kapas. Nanti prosesnya itu disebutnya ginning, melepaskan serat-serat dari bijinya, setelah itu baru dipintal," jelas Gati.Menurutnya, pemberian mesin dengan anggaran sekitar Rp 400 juta tersebut merupakan proyek percontohan.

 

"Kalau ini berhasil, kami akan pasok ke seluruh Indonesia. Sementara ini, programnya dipusatkan di Kabupaten Timor Tengah Selatan yang fokusnya ada di 2 sentra, yakni di Kecamatan Boti dan Nasi," ungkap Gati.

 

Kemenperin mencatat, saat ini terdapat 430 sentra tenun yang tersebar di seluruh wilayah Indonesia termasuk di Provinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur. Hampir seluruh Kabupaten/Kota di Provinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur adalah penghasil tenun yang berada di 115 Sentra IKM dengan 3.506 perajin yang memiliki ciri khas masing-masing daerah. Umumnya bahan baku yang digunakan merupakan benang kapas yang diwarnai dengan pewarna tekstil dan pewarna alam.

 

Dalam memperkuat kualitas produk tenun, Ditjen IKM juga akan melakukan serangkaian pembinaan bagi IKM melalui fasilitas penguatan sumber daya manusia dengan kegiatan bimbingan teknis dan pendampingan.

 

Selain itu, akan memberikan bantuan mesin dan peralatan, peningkatan kualitas produk dan pengembangan pasar, penguatan sentra, penguatan kemampuan Unit Pelayanan Teknis serta penumbuhan Wirausaha Baru.

 

"Kami berharap, produk tenun tidak hanya dipakai untuk adat saja tetapi juga untuk fesyen, produk kerajinan dan home decor," ujar Gati.
