Currently gambier in Limapuluh Kota, is not only limited to export commodities, but also develops in the fashion industry. Gambir has also been used by MSMEs for textile craft products typical of the Limapuluh Kota Regency. The latest gambir batik has also become an attraction for fashion designers, textile entrepreneurs and visitors at the 2022 Autonomy Application Expo. "I'm interested to know more about gambir batik, because when someone passed by someone said that batik is fairly unique," he said, Saturday (22/07/2022).

He admitted, Gambir batik is very possible to be developed. He is interested in collaborating in the development of this Limapuluh Kota gambir batik.

Gambir, especially its sap extract, is a leading export product from Limapuluh Kota. According to data, the total national export value of gambier reaches 18,000 tons with an estimated value of Rp. US$ 55 million dollars.

The Province of West Sumatra (West Sumatra), especially the Limapuluh Kota Regency, contributes as much as 50 percent of the national production of gambier.

Later, the latex extract, which is processed into tannins, is used to make batik by relying on a typical Minangkabau-flavoured design.

Such as the design of the gadang/rangkiang house, carvings, and inspiration from the charm of natural beauty. Most of the gambir batik, which is dominated by hand-drawn batik, were developed by IKM and home industries (IRT).

"The production of Gambir Batik, in addition to empowering IKM, is also a breakthrough in diversifying production from only gambir sap extract, into finished goods, this certainly increases the added value of the product," said Regent of Limapuluh Kota, Safaruddin.
