Written by Maizer

Weaving and ikat manufacturers in Lamongan Regency are worried that their export exports to a number of countries in the Middle East will decline following the warming of Iran's relations with the United States this week. Businessmen and craftsmen of sarong and ikat weaving are in Parengan Village, Maduran District, Lamongan.

 

Data at the Lamongan Industry and Trade Office (Disperindag) states, around 28 entrepreneurs of weaving and 2,500 crafters. They produce sarong and ikat weaving on average above 200 scores (one score of 20 sheets) per day.

 

According to entrepreneurs of sarong and ikat weaving from Parengan Village, Miftakhul Khoiri, the production of woven and sarong in his area was sent to a number of cities in Indonesia such as to Surabaya, Malang, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Jakarta and Bandung. Beyond that, sarong and ikat from Maduran District is exported to a number of countries in Southeast Asia, such as Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam and Singapore.

 

Not only that, sarong and ikat is also exported to a number of countries in the Middle East. Among them in Saudi Arabia, and also in Somalia. "We export regularly," Khoiri.

 

 

Khoiri said, usually specifically for exports to the Middle East carried out once a month as many as 800 scores or if converted to an average of more than Rp 1.8 billion. Exports are carried out by way of exporters from Surabaya which are then sent to countries in the Middle East.

 

However, with the current Middle East conditions, there are tensions between Iran and the United States, Khoiri worried the numbers will decline. "Usually it decreases to 60 to 80 percent. "Of course the market will be lethargic," he said.

 

However, Khoiri and entrepreneurs sarong and woven cloth in Maduran District, in the event of an Iran-American conflict, the production market will be focused on countries in Southeast Asia. Because, these countries are relatively market stable. For example in the State of Brunei Darussalam. "We hope the Middle East does not heat up. But, if it happens, we will switch markets to Southeast Asia. "

 

The Head of the Lamongan Industry and Trade Office, Mohammad Zamroni, said that the District of Maduran, has been the center of the sarong and ikat weaving industry. This craft has lasted more than 70 years. "So, entrepreneurs in the area are experienced in the market," he said.

 

Previously the rupiah exchange rate (exchange rate) that was traded between banks in Jakarta on Monday afternoon, January 6, 2020, was closed lower, triggered by increased tension between the United States and Iran. The rupiah closed down 14 points or 0.1 percent to Rp 13,944 per US dollar compared to the previous day's position of Rp 13,930 per US dollar.

 

"The rupiah weakened against the US dollar following negative sentiment due to market fears of a possible war in the Middle East after the US killed Iran's influential generals," said PT Monex Investindo Futures Futures Research Head Ariston Tjendra.
