Since I first knew Trusmi as batik center in Cirebon city, I always wanted to visit there to see more closely how the village of batik in this shrimp city. But the intentions were only successful in my last visit to Cirebon a few weeks ago.
Located in Plered Sub-district, this Trusmi Batik Village can be reached in just a few minutes from the center of Cirebon by private vehicle or public transportation. Incidentally I did not explore more deeply into this batik village so I am still very curious to go to Trusmi again. My friend said the Cirebon batik ambassador, @Paminto, better walk / ride a pedicab when traveling to Trusmi, so it can freely stop by from one store to another store The shops in Kampung Batik Trusmi themselves are actually houses that were transformed in such a way that the booths to showcase the collection of batik. The houses are standing on both sides of the village streets that can still be crossed by two cars.
Yesterday I and my friends went straight to one of batik shop to see the typical batik collection Cirebon. When entering the store, we were immediately greeted with a variety of batik products, ranging from clothing to knick-knacks, such as prayer mats, sling bags, laptop cases, to cloth sheeting batik.
Incidentally because it was in Trusmi, I was immediately looking for a mega cloudy motif that is typical of Cirebon. Price per meter of cotton print motif mega overcast is Rp. 30.000,00, while the price of printed batik cloth can be redeemed from Rp.50.000,00 to hundreds and even millions of rupiah, depending on the type of materials, coloring, as well as the level of complexity of the motive.
